The third act from the Symphony Solomon has been arranged by Richard Simm and written for one piano - four hands - in B flat major. The best known piece of music from Solomon is the Act III Symphony, otherwise known as The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba.

Originally borrowed from an air by Porta, Handel first used it in a trio and later adapted it for Solomon, to show the flurry of excitement at the Queen's impending arrival.

      Well produced copy, clear and easy to read. The duet is fun to play, not too challenging but effective.

      This is the best version for piano duet - there are others but they do not feel authentic is style.

      Pour de jeunes musiciens qui aiment jouer avec un ami, ce partition donne des bons moments. C'est facile, mais vite! et pour ceux qui aiment la musique baroque, tres prédictable, ce morceau est satisfaisant.

      I have not yet managed to find someone to play this duet with but it looks to be a good arrangement and fun to play!
