Handel - Alla Hornpipe from Water Music Suite II

Sheet music for violin

Info: Alla Hornpipe is from Suite in D major (HWV 349), part of the Water Music collection of orchestral movements. It premiered on 17 July 1717 after King George I had requested a concert on the River Thames. The Water Music is scored for a relatively large orchestra, making it suitable for outdoor performance. Some of the music is also preserved in arrangement for a smaller orchestra; this version is not suitable for outdoor performance, as the sound of stringed instruments does not carry well in the open air.
Date: 1717
Artist: George Frideric Handel
Born: 23 February 1685, Halle
Died: 14 April 1759, London
The artist: German, later British Baroque composer who spent the bulk of his career in London, becoming well known for his operas, oratorios, anthems, and organ concertos. Born in a family indifferent to music, Handel received critical training in Halle, Hamburg and Italy before settling in London in 1712; he became a naturalised British subject in 1727. He was strongly influenced both by the great composers of the Italian Baroque and the middle-German polyphonic choral tradition.
