HANDEL: Concerto Grosso in D major, Op. 3, No. 6; HAYDN: Concertino in C major; J.C. BACH: Concerto in B-flat major, Op.13, No. 4 by George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) and Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809). For piano. Instrumental Solo Part and CD. Published by Music Minus One (MO.MMOCD3056).
Handel's concerti grossi are considered the epitome of the baroque concerto form. And this lively example is no exception. A delight! Haydn's Concertino is cast in three short movements; this charming little concerto is classic Haydn and is highly enjoyable to play. Johann Christian Bach was the youngest of the Bach sons and Mozart was overwhelmingly influenced by his compositions. His short B-flat concerto demonstrates his compositional brilliance. A perfect student concerto.
Includes a high-quality printed solo part (with orchestral reduction) and a compact disc containing a complete version with soloist, in split-channel stereo (soloist on the right channel); then a second version in full stereo of the orchestral accompaniment, minus the soloist.
