G.F. Handel: Keyboard Works For Solo Instruments

Books | Piano

Publisher: Dover Publications
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
Here, for the first time in a popularly accessible edition, are 35 of his finest keyboard works for solo instruments, reproduced from the monumental Deutsche Handelgesellschaft edition, including eight 'Great Suites' and 'Fugue In A Minor'. For this new edition, the pieces have been rearranged and retitled according to the latest scholarly sequences found in The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians. Students and scholars will find many of the ideas Handel sketched here expanded and reworked in later chamber and orchestral works and in the opera dance movements; musicians and every Baroque music lover will see in these neglected pieces "a Protean Fluidity" (New Grove) worthy of the great composer, and more than worthy of any musical library.

        Clearly printed.
        Paper is an unusual colour, but does not detract from readability.
        Would have preferred to see other available works for solo piano printed, rather than all arrangements for duets. However, this can be rectified by search if I want to buy any more. But, have enough to be going on with at the moment.
