Item Number: S0.329006

Handel wrote 3 suites of Water Music, but the first suite in F major is the longest. It contains the famous Air in F, along with several other movements, including a Minuet, Bouree and Hornpipe, along with several unlabelled movements. It is a fantastic example of a Baroque Orchestra suite written by one of the Masters of Baroque Music and is ideal for events like weddings, school concerts or functions. It functions easily both as a concert piece and background music for events like wedding receptions.

The arrangement goes for approx. 18 min not including repeats. This purchase includes a score and parts for all performers; violin 1, violin 2, and cello. It would work best for players of an intermediate to advanced level. It is set in the key of F major, which is the original key that the suite was written in.

Laura Chegwidden is a pianist, cellist, double bassist and singer from Newcastle Australia. She recently graduated with distinction  from the University of Newcastle with a B.MUS majoring in Cello and Composition.
