Handel - Violin Sonata in G minor (IV. Allegretto)

Sheet music for violin

Info: Fourth and last movement (Allegretto) of the Violin sonata in G minor (HWV 368, Op. 1 No. 10), a work for violin and keyboard (harpsichord). The piece was originally thought to have been composed by George Frideric Handel. Modern scholars however believe it doubtful that the work was composed by Handel. The work is also referred to as Opus 1 No. 10, and was first published in 1732 by Walsh. Other catalogues of Handel's music have referred to the work as HG xxvii,37; and HHA iv/4,28. Both the Walsh edition and the Chrysander edition indicate that the work is for violin, and published it as Sonata X. In both editions, the tempo of movement four is unmarked (but appears to be an allegro, or similar).
Opus number: HWV 368, Op. 1 No. 10
Date: 1732
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.
