This recording on the opus 7 organ concertos by Handel is another wonderful addition to the "Handel-opus-number" series recordings recently produced by the Academy of Ancient Music under the direction of Richard Egarr.
If you enjoy Baroque music, or if you are a Handel aficionado, there is little doubt that you will enjoy this recording as much as I do.
Handel was a prodigious composer, but he focused much of his time on the development of oratorios and operas. As everyone knows, Handel's genius shines forth in many of those works, and to know them is a real joy. But Handel was also a master of orchestral music: these LP) are so amazing that we often find ourselves wishing that he had spent just a little bit more time focusing on this genre. The Concerto Grossi opus 6, for example, is just one example of what Handel could do when he decided to compose for the orchestra.
And here, his wonderful organ concertos help round out the set. The Academy of Ancient Music, now under the direction of Richard Egarr, recently completed a new recording cycle that covers all Handel's opus 1 through 7 orchestral works, and this recording, the opus 7 Organ Concertos, shine as brightly as the rest of this highly acclaimed recording cycle.
The decision to record this series was a welcome one, for there has been far too little current Handelian recording efforts these days much of the Handelian recording cycles were accomplished to well deserved critical acclaim back in the 's in Gardener's, Pinnock's, and Hogwood's cycles, amongst othersand this fact helps us accept the relatively high cost of these new AAM disks.
Yes, the cost can be high, but if this is what it takes to support a new generation of players recording Handel with the latest in electronic recording technology, it is certainly well worth it. This recording is superlative in every sense, and if one listens with a keen ear towards recognizing the recording itself, it can be seen what advances have been made in recording technology over the years.
You say that you're not an organ fan? Well, I've not been one, either, but this set may make you change your mind. These pieces are gorgeous, witty, dramatic, and sometimes, even humorous. You find yourself, as often we do with Handel, drawn into a world of musical beauty, and the experience can be simply amazing.
These pieces show what Handel could do with an orchestra and with the organ, as well. Since Handel himself was an expert organist, one of the best in all of Europe at the time, we can only imagine the fun - and that's the world for it, to be sure - Handel himself must have enjoyed when he played these pieces himself, which he almost certainly did.

Largo, e piano. At the close, following a passage where the two solo violins play in elaborate counterpoint over a statement of the main theme in the full orchestra, Handel, in a stroke of inspiration, suddenly has a simple piano restatement of the theme in the concertino leading into two bars of bare and halting muted tutti chords, before a concluding reprise of the theme by the full orchestra.
The final allegro is a sort of polonaise in binary form for full orchestra. Its transparency and crispness result partly from the amalgamation of the second violin and viola parts into a single independent voice.
The ninth concerto grosso is the only one that is undated in the original manuscript, probably because the last movement was discarded for one of the previously composed concertos.
Apart from the first and last movements, it contains the least quantity of freshly composed material of all the concertos. The opening largo consists of 28 bars of bare chords for full orchestra, with the interest provided by the harmonic progression and changes in the dynamic markings, LP).
Stanley Sadie has declared the movement an unsuccessful experiment, although others have pointed out that the music nevertheless holds the listener's attention, despite its starkness. Previous commentators have suggested that perhaps an extra improvised voice was intended by Handel, but such a demand on a soloist would have been beyond usual baroque performing practices.
The second and third movements are reworkings of the first two movements Handel's organ concerto in F major, HWVoften referred to as "The cuckoo and the nightingale", because of the imitation of birdsong. The allegro is skillfully transformed into a more disciplined and broader movement than the original, while retaining its innovative spirit.
The solo and orchestral parts of the original are intermingled and redistributed in an imaginative and novel way between concertino and ripieno. The "cuckoo" effects are transformed into repeated notes, sometimes supplemented by extra phrases, exploiting the different sonorities of solo and tutti players. The "nightingale" effects are replaced by reprises of the ritornello and the modified cuckoo.
The final organ solo, partly ad libitumis replaced by virtuoso semiquaver passages and an extra section of repeated notes precedes the final tutti. The larghettoa gentle sicilianais similarly transformed. The first forty bars use the same material, but Handel makes a stronger conclusion with a brief return to the opening theme. For the fourth and fifth movements, Handel used the second and third parts of the second version of the overture to his still unfinished opera Imeneo.
Both movements were transposed from G to F: the allegro an animated but orthodox fugue; the minuet starting unusually in the minor key, but moving to the major key for the eight bar coda. The final gigue in binary form was left over from Op. The tenth Grand Concerto in D minor has the form a baroque dance suiteintroduced by a French overture : this accounts for the structure of the concerto and the presence of only one slow movement.
The first movement, marked ouverture — allegro — lentementhas the form a French overture. The dotted rhythms in the slow first part are similar to those Handel used in his operatic overtures. The subject of the allegro fugue in 6 8 time, two rhythmic bars leading into four bars in semiquavers, allowed him to make every restatement sound dramatic.
The fugue leads into a short concluding lentement passage, a variant of the material from the start. The Air, lentement is a sarabande -like dance movement of noble and monumental simplicity, its antique style enhanced by hints of modal harmonies. The following two allegros are loosely based on the allemande and the courante. The scoring in the first allegroin binary formis similar in style to that of allemandes in baroque keyboard suites.
The second allegro is a longer, ingeniously composed movement in the Italian concerto style. There is no ritornello; instead the rhythmic material in the opening bars and the first entry in the bass line is used in counterpoint throughout the piece to create a feeling of rhythmic direction, full of merriment and surprises.
The final allegro moderato in D major had originally been intended for the twelfth concerto, when Handel had experimented with the keys of D major and B minor. A cheerful gavotte -like movement, it is in binary formwith a variation or double featuring repeated semiquavers and quavers in the upper and lower strings.
Charles Burney. The eleventh concerto was probably the last to be completed according to the date in the autograph manuscript. Handel chose to make this concerto an adaptation of his recently composed but still unpublished organ concerto HWV in A major: in either form it has been ranked as one of the very finest of Handel's concertos, "a monument of sanity and undemonstrative sense", according to Basil Lam.
The ad libitum sections for organ are replaced by accompanied passages for solo violin. The order of the third and fourth movements was reversed so that the long andante became the central movement in the concerto grosso. The first two movements together have the form of a French overture.
In the andante larghetto, e staccato the orchestral ritornellos with their dotted rhythms alternate with the virtuoso passages for upper LP) and solo first violin. The following allegro is a short four-part fugue which concludes with the fugal subject replaced by an elaborated semiquaver version of the first two bars of the original subject.
In the autograph score of the first of his organ concertos Op. An introductory six bar largo precedes the fourth movement, a long andante in Italian concerto form which forms the centre of the concerto.
The ritornello theme, of deceptive simplicity and quintessentially Handelian, alternates with virtuosic gigue-like passages for solo strings, in each reprise the ritornello subtly transformed but still recognizable.
It incorporates the features of a Venetian conerto: the brilliant virtuosic episodes or solo violin alternate with the four-bar orchestral ritornello, which Handel varies on each reprise.
Basil Lamwriting of the third movement in the last Grand Concerto . The arresting dotted rhythms of the opening largo recall the dramatic style of the French overture, although the movement also serves to contrast the full orchestra with the quieter ripieno strings. The following highly inventive movement is a brilliant and animated allegroa moto perpetuo.
The busy semiquaver figure in the theme, passed constantly between different parts of the orchestra and the soloists, only adds to the overall sense of rhythmic and harmonic direction.
Although superficially in concerto form, this movement's success is probably more a result of Handel's departure from convention. The central third movement, marked Larghetto e pianocontains one of the most beautiful melodies written by Handel. With its quiet gravity, it is similar to the andante larghettosometimes referred to as the "minuet", in the overture to the opera Berenicewhich Charles Burney described as "one of the most graceful and pleasing movements that has ever been composed".
After its statement, it is varied twice, the first time with a quaver walking bassthen with Grave - Allegro - Georg Friedrich Händel - The 16 Organ Concertos (Vinyl melody itself played in quavers. The fourth movement is a brief largo, like an accompanied recitativewhich leads into the final allegro fugue.
Its gigue-like theme is derived from a fugue of Friedrich Wilhelm ZachowHandel's boyhood teacher in Halleto whom the movement is perhaps some form of homage.
If the epithet grandinstead of implying, as it usually does, many parts, or a Concerto requiring a great band or Orchestra, had been here intended to express sublimity and dignity, it might have been used with the utmost propriety; for I can recollect no movement that is more lofty and noble than this; or in which the LP) and the base of the tuttior full parts, are of such distinct and marked characters; both bold, and contrasted, not only with each other, but with the solo parts, which are graceful and chantant.
Nor did I ever know such business done in so short a time; that movement contains but thirty-four bars, and yet nothing seems left unsaid; and though it begins with so much pride and haughtiness, it melts at last into softness; and, where it modulates into a minor key, seems to express fatigue, languor and fainting.
Handel's twelve grand concertos were already available to the public through Walsh's solo organ arrangements of four of them and through the various editions of the full Opus 6 produced during Handel's lifetime. These concerts, repeated over the next few years and establishing an English tradition for Handel festivals in the nineteenth century and beyond, were on a grand scale, with huge choruses and instrumental forces, far beyond what Handel had at his disposal: apart from sackbuts and trombonesa special organ was installed in the Abbey with displaced keyboards.
Nevertheless, excerpts from four of his grand concertos Nos. They were described in detail by the contemporary musicologist and commentator Charles Burney in Like Handel's organ concertos, in the nineteenth century his concerti grossi Op. Schubert — and Ludwig Stark — There also arrangements of several for piano solo by various composers, including Gustav Friedrich Kogel —Giuseppe Martucci —Otto Singer — and August Stradel —who arranged the whole set. In the twentieth century, Arnold Schoenberga composer openly antipathetic to Handel but at a turning point in his musical career, "freely arranged" the Concerto Grosso, Op.

The opening of this piece always Grave - Allegro - Georg Friedrich Händel - The 16 Organ Concertos (Vinyl me with the idea of its being the most spirited and characteristic of all the music written by Handel, or any other composer, on Lulli's model of Opera Overture; which seems to require a convulsive, deliberate and military craft The finale, or minuet of this Concerto, has been so much admired by English composers of Handel's school, as to have to have been frequently thought worthy of imitation.
The Solo parts of this movement were thought more brilliant, than easy and natural to the bow and finger-board, forty-years ago. Here the permanent inspiration of Italy rises in all the freshness of his youth, with the added weight and gravity of years, to produce one of those tunes that speak to every degree and level of musical experience. There could be no more convincing testimony to Handel's greatness of mind and heart. Archived from the original on Retrieved
