Suite in g minor is a complete adaptation of Suite No. 16 for keyboard by George Frederick Handel. Articulations and dynamic nuances have been added, adapting this piece to the musical demands and characteristics, not of an 18th century keyboard instrument, but of the modern woodwind quintet. Some of the original embellishments have been changed or omitted to best suit the ensemble.
All repeats should be honored to preserve symmetry. However, in performance, the second repeats in the first and third movements may be omitted to give each movement a strong sense of ternary form.
