G.F. Handel by George Frideric Handel

Book Description

Along with Bach's Brandenburg Concerti, Handel's twelve Concerti Grossi, Op. 6, are the crowning achievement of the Baroque concerto. Endlessly inventive in structure, rhythm, phrasing, and color, they range in mood from solemn and tragic, through expansive and serene, to lighthearted, jocular, and playful. For over two centuries they have been a mainstay of the concerto repertoire.This volume reproduces the full scores of all twelve of these masterworks, together with the six Concerti Grossi, Op. 3, and the C-Major "Alexander's Feast" Concerto Grosso nineteen in all exactly as they appear in the authoritative Deutsche Handelgesellschaft edition.These full orchestral scores are not abridged. This is the only moderately priced, large-format edition of Handel's complete Concerti Grossi currently available. Printed on opaque paper and bound so that the pages will lie flat and not fall out, it makes an invaluable and durable reference, study guide, and listener's companion."
