Chaconne in G Major, G229 (with 21 Variations)
George Frideric Handel
This masterpiece of the theme and variation form is one of Handel's best-known works for keyboard. It opens with a heroic theme and variations in G major, followed by a poignant, lyrical section of variations in G minor, and it concludes with a decisive return to G major.
A brilliant, yet accessible recital piece, newly edited and engraved for the modern performer.
