I want to make an edition that is not a Koopman interpretation, but contains only that which Handel really wrote.' (Ton Koopman)

Ton Koopman's new edition of all 16 organ concertos by Handel has drawn to a close. The quality of this edition has been highly praised from all quarters. Source-critical responsibility goes hand in hand with a high level of performance practice when Koopman provides interpretative tips for the ad libitum passages in the organ part without restricting the creativity of the interpreter who is interested in stylistic matters and prefers to work out his own solutions.

"I want to make an edition that is not a Koopman interpretation, but contains only that which Handel really wrote. Nevertheless, there are occasional performance suggestions in small print which are elucidated in the Critical Commentary." (Ton Koopman in "Concerto")
"Koopman offers a basically unmarked text, thus leaving the performance details up to the performer. Especially note-worthy is the clear printing, extensive preface and detailed Critical Notes." (Katholische Kirchenmusik)

Whoever wishes to hear the entire Koopman edition on CD can look forward to the new recording by Christian Schmitt and the Stuttgarter Kammerorchester (Brilliant Classics). This is the first recording for which all 16 new Koopman editions were used as the basis for the performance.

Als Eusebius Mandyczewski das vorliegende Werk 1898 in seiner Einrichtung fur Horn und Klavier erstmals der Offentlichkeit zuganglich machte fugte er zwei Kadenzen hinzu sowie im dritten Satz zehn Tutti-Takte (144 bis 153) um den Eintritt der Schlusskadenz wirkungsvoller vorzubereiten.
