Most music lovers have encountered Georg Friedrich Händel (1685 – 1759) through holiday-time renditions of the Messiah's "Hallelujah" chorus. And many of them know and love that oratorio on Christ's life, death, and resurrection, as well as a few other greatest hits like the orchestral Water Music and Royal Fireworks Music, and perhaps Judas Maccabeus or one of the other English oratorios. Yet his operas, for which he was widely known in his own time, are the province mainly of specialists in Baroque music, and the events of his life, even though they reflected some of the most important musical issues of the day, have never become as familiar as the careers of Bach or Mozart. Perhaps the single word that best describes his life and music is "cosmopolitan": he was a German composer, trained in Italy, who spent most of his life in England.

Although he was a music composer not a music publisher, Handel undertook to issue his first volume of keyboard suites himself in London in 1720. He did so because as he wrote in the preface, "surrepticious [sic] and incorrect Copies of them had got Abroad" or, to put it more bluntly, Jeanne Roger of Amsterdam had pirated the scores and was making money off of them without paying Handel any royalties. Many of the suites were intended to be didactic pieces, teaching students keyboard technique while amusing them with cheerful melodies and pleasant harmonies. The Suite in F sharp minor is not one of those suites. Rather, it is a darkly tragic piece in four intense movements: an opening Prelude of enormous range and power, a brooding Largo in triple-time with huge chords and demonic trills, and a gigantic Fuga marked Allegro that simply starts with a descending theme but adds voice after voice of counterpoint to culminate in a stark Adagio cadence in seven voices. The closing Gigue, marked Presto, twists and winds through tightly argued modulations to a final, bleak cadence.
