Georg Friedrich Händel: Nine German Arias For Soprano, Solo Instrument And Basso Continuo

Books | Soprano, Continuo

Publisher: Henle Verlag
Format: Sheet Music | Score and Parts

We do not know very much about Handel’s compositions on poems by Barthold Heinrich Brockes. We can only date their composition to approximately 1724–1727.

The autograph does not shed any light on the titles nor the sequence of the works. It does not even give the instrumentation. Thus there are several alternatives for the solo instrument that imitates the vocal part – although Violin, Flute or Oboe are the most likely.

Henle's practical edition not only contains additional parts for the solo instrument and the Bass but also a realization of the figured Bass in the score by the editor Ullrich Scheideler.
