This performing edition offers a selection of the easiest keyboard pieces and dances by George Frideric Handel. Although Handel’s keyboard works occupy a modest place in his extensive compositional output, they include many pieces of outstanding significance.
Himself a virtuoso keyboard player, Handel wrote not only difficult music for his instrument but also a considerable number of easy pieces from various stages in his career.
Alongside wellknown pieces such as the Sarabande in D minor, this edition includes pieces which bring discoveries and surprises. It is particularly in his dance numbers that Handel reveals himself as a true master of the easy but euphonious keyboard piece. Many minuets, airs and marches appear here for the first time in a printed collection, a clear indication of the editorial value of this edition. The reliable fingering and the notes on ornamentation make the collection very practical to use. A varied and unusual range of pieces for piano lessons with valuable notes on the works and a spacious appearance on the page.
