This was Handel's first organ concerto, one of six works contained in his Op. 4 set. Despite the low opus number, the collection was not an early effort -- the composer was about 50 when he produced the works. Cast in four movements, this Organ Concerto in G minor has an unusual structure, with slow markings for the first, third, and fourth movements. Yet the finale, despite its Andante tempo, is much livelier than that marking would normally suggest. The opening panel, marked Larghetto, e staccato, opens dramatically in the orchestra, the music moving at a deliberate but emphatic gait. The organ presents a subdued, somewhat ethereal theme in the upper ranges, as if to tame the angry character of the orchestra. Further exchanges between organ and orchestra continue in this manner throughout the movement. The ensuing Allegro opens with a lively, chipper theme in the orchestra. The organ then takes it up, exhibiting much color and virtuosity here and throughout. The Adagio third movement is solemn and gentle, while the Andante finale begins on organ with a lively, joyous tune. The orchestra then plays its rendition of the theme and there follows many interesting exchanges between organ and orchestra. Handel's keyboard writing here is dazzling and quite showy, capping this 15-minute work with many technical challenges. .

Although originally created for Solo Organ & Orchestra, I created this Interpretation of the Andante (Mvt. 3) for Solo Harp.
