    Handel, 6 Sonatas for Violin and Piano Volume 2 (IMC)

    Sonatas No 4-6

    edited by Zino Francescatti

    Contents:

    • Sonata in D Major, Op. 1 No. 13, HWV 371 
    • Sonata in A major, Op. 1 No. 14, HWV 372
    • Sonata in E Major, Op. 1 No. 15, HWV 373

    Handel's Sonata in D Major represents his last piece of chamber music and is one of his strongest sonatas.  The paper of the surviving autograph has been dated to around 1750.  The slow movements are rich and expressive.  The counterpoint of the second movement is ebullient, virtuosic and not at all heavy-handed.  The final movement has a dancelike theme that can also be found in his oratorio Jephtha. It has four movements- the Affettuoso, Allegro,  Larghetto and Allegro

    The Sonata in A Major has four movements-  An Andante, Allegro, Adagio and another Allegro.  

    The Sonata in E major has four movements- An Adagio, Allegro, Largo and another Allegro.

    The sonatas in A major and E major has been attributed to Handel,  however modern scholars are doubtful that Handel composed these works.

    Regardless of this they exude a light elegance and warmth and are  beautiful works for violin and piano.
