Sonata No. 4 in D Major, HWV 371 for violin and piano by George Frideric Handel

Edited by Leopold Auer and Carl Friedberg. Published by Carl Fischer

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.

Handel's sonatas for violin and harpsichord are genial and charming chamber music, as opposed to vehicles of virtuosity. Both violinist and keyboard player are given ample opportunity to converse and interact. These sonatas are ideal for students for their approachability and substance. This Sonata in D Major, HWV 371 is one of the highlights from the collection. Intermediate-advanced level, Grade 4.
