Ballet Music for descant recorder (or flute, or oboe, or violin) with harpsichord or piano accompaniment
Written by Georg Friedrich Handel
Includes a basso continuo part

The four suites in this volume have been compiled from the ballet music of operas by Handel (Il Pastor Fido, Almira, Rodrigo and Alcina). These movements, originally written for various kinds of ensemble, have been adapted for descant recorder (or another melodic instrument: flute or oboe, for example) and keyboard accompaniment. This type of transcription is in keeping with the musical practice of the baroque period: the instrumental textbooks of the time, including those for the recorder, were full of the melodies of operatic hits and dances, and chamber music movements into their subsequent operas. The movements of the suites in this edition are presented in the original order in which they were featured in the operas, but in performance, in accordance with the practice of the period, dances can be switched around or left out.
