Series: Henle Music Folios Publisher: Henle Urtext Edition Format: Softcover Composer: George Friedrich Handel Editor: Anthony Hicks

George Frideric Handel's powerful musical personality reveals itself not only in the large forms of opera, oratorio, and orchestra suite, but also in his compositions for keyboard. The focus here is on eight Suites of his first printed collection from 1720, which by no means comprise standardized sequences of dance movements. On the contrary – free-form movements of great artistic weight predominate, inserting themselves between lighter dance pieces. Handel's suites always display a distinctive individuality, and deserve a larger presence in our concert halls. We were able to engage Handel specialist Anthony Hicks as the editor of this Urtext edition.
