Suite from Water Music

Suite from Water Music

Series: MusicWorks Grade 2 Score & Parts Composer: George Frideric Handel Arranger: Johnnie Vinson

Level: 2.5

The music of Handel is considered the culmination of the Baroque period of music history, and his Water Music (1717) has endured in popularity for nearly 300 years! Performed from a barge traveling on the River Thames, King George I is said to have liked the music so much that he ordered it repeated several times. Originally three suites each consisting of multiple movements, Johnnie Vinson has skillfully adapted this arrangement for young players using “Alla Hornpipe” from the Suite in D Major, and the “Air” and “Allegro” from the Suite in F Major. Dur: 4:20
