Reviews of this publication:

 


* George Frideric Handel

The popularity of Handel’s recorder sonatas can easily be gauged by
the sheer number of
old and modern publications of them. This edition unites the six
authentic sonatas and
also includes the early version of movement no. 6 to the D minor
sonata. It is based on the
eminently reliable text of the Halle Handel Edition, the “last word”
in Handel scholarship.

The G minor, A minor, C major and F major sonatas were originally
edited by Hans Peter
Schmitz in 1955 for the Halle Handel Edition. These sonatas were
then re-edited in 1995
by Terence Best.

The forthcoming publication contains a thorough discussion of the
history and genesis of the
works and handy tips dealing with performance practice by the
renowned Handel scholar
Terence Best. In addition to the score, the edition has a solo
recorder part and a bass part
with figures.

A must publication for performers of Handel’s beloved music for
recorder. This publication
replaces the older Hortus Musicus nos. 251 color:black:

“Let’s hope that this is the final ‘scholarly edition’ of the Handel
recorder sonatas. I do not
see a need for any more!“

(Martha Bixler – American Recorder, November 1993)
