Composer to manage being heard (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

handel

Here is my best explanation:

'composer' is the definition.

(Handel is an example)

'manage being heard' is the subsidiary indication.

'manage' becomes 'handle' ('handle' can be a synonym of 'manage').

'being heard' shows a homophone (sound like).

'handle' sounds like 'handel'.

'to' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for handel that I've seen before include "George Frideric --, composer", "German scorer", "Old musician", "German-born composer to the ` `Messiah' '", "Baroque composer", "German baroque composer", "music-maker", "Water Music composer, d. 1759", "Anglo-German composer" and "Composer of the great ''Messiah''".)
