Water Music for Brass Quintet by George F. Handel, transcribed by Steve Cooper, pub. Trigram

$34.50

Item Details

Steve Cooper has transcribed excerpts from the first Suite (in F) of Handel's Water Music, including the Hornpipe. 

This is scored for 2 trumpets, horn, trombone and tuba.

The Water Music is a collection of orchestral movements, often published as three suites, composed by George Frideric Handel (1685-1759).  It premiered on 17 July 1717, in response to King George I's request for a concert on the River Thames.
The Water Music is scored for a relatively large orchestra, making it suitable for outdoor performance.  Some of the music is also preserved in arrangement for a smaller orchestra; this version is not suitable for outdoor performance, as the sound of stringed instruments does not carry well in the open air.
