Handel - Violin Sonata Op. 1 No. 15 (III. Largo)

Sheet music for violin

Info: The Violin sonata in E major (HWV 373) is a work for violin and harpsichord that was originally thought to have been composed by G. F. Handel. Modern scholars however believe it doubtful that the work was composed by Handel, and have labelled it as "spurious". The work was first published in 1730 by Walsh. The sonata was first published in the 1730 Walsh edition as Sonata XII. For some reason Walsh did not republish the work in his 1732 edition. The Chrysander edition published the work as Sonata XV, and the designation of "Opus 1, No. 15" is his. All editions indicate that the work is for violin.

Born: 23 February 1685, Halle

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.
