Passacaglia - Duo for Violin and Viola by Johan Halvorsen, arranged from Suite no. 7 in G minor for harpsichord by George Frideric Handel

Edited by Frieda R. Davis and Leonard Davis. Published by International

George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) was one of the greatest composers of the Baroque Era. Born and trained in Halle, Germany, he spent most of career in London. He is perhaps best known for his operas and oratorios, though his instrumental music, like ''Music for the Royal Fireworks'', is also renowned. His high baroque style combined elements of the German polyphonic tradition and the clarity and melody of the Italian baroque. His great dramatic skill left a lasting impact on later composers.

Norwegian Johan Halvorsen (1864-1935) freely adapted this remarkable 'Passacaglia' from the final movement of Handel's Harpsichord Suite No. 7 in G minor. He transforms Handel's masterful set of variations into this dazzling showpiece, incorporating spiccato, ponticello, and other extended string techniques. Version for violin and viola. Includes score and two performing parts. Master level, Grade 6.
