Reviews of this publication:

* George Frideric Handel

The two collections of suites that Handel himself issued in 1720 and
1733 form the main pillars
of his keyboard music. For Handel, the suite was a self-contained
genre with a cyclic
formal design. Thus, although indebted to the sequence of movements
customary at the time,
each suite in these two collections has distinctive features all of
its own.

This new edition by the renowned Handel scholar Terence Best draws
Peter Northway’s ground-breaking volume of 1970. Many new
discoveries have made it
necessary to thoroughly revise Northway’s work. All these research
findings have been
incorporated in our volume along with the Urtext from the “Halle
Handel Edition”.

The volume also contains an informative appendix with alternative
versions and movements
that Handel withdrew before publication. This comprehensive edition
of the 1733 collection
is rounded off with a detailed preface, thereby creating a new
edition that satisfies every
prerequisite for professional performances at the highest level.
