Reviews of this publication:


* George Frideric Handel

Handel’s sonatas for one solo instrument and basso continuo are some
of the finest
examples found in the genre. The three oboe sonatas found in our new
edition are prime
examples of this.

The Urtext of the Halle Handel Complete Edition forms the basis for
the new publication. As a
scholarly critical edition it is concerned with the authentic
sonatas written by Handel and not
those often found in other collections which are either
transcriptions of works originally
composed for other instruments (e. g. the F major sonata which is
often found in G major) or
spurious compositions. All editorial additions are clearly indicated
and as such players have a
solid basis for rendering performances true to the composers
intentions. The publication
includes an informative historical as well as performance practice
introduction by the noted
Handel scholar Terence Best. It contains a score and two oboe/basso
continuo parts.
All of this adds up to a sure winner for oboists.
