For some reason I had never investigated the Handel keyboard suites until a renewed interest in playing the piano for pleasure caused me to start checking out all sorts of things I wasn't familiar with. Listening to the excellent recordings of the complete suites by Gavrilov and Richter on EMI Handel: Keyboard Suites, Vol. 1; Handel: Keyboard Suites, Vol. 2; Beethoven: Piano Sonata, Op. 31/2 made me want to have this music to play. I was waffling about purchasing this Dover edition for a bit since I wasn't sure about the typeface and there were no fingerings. After realizing that most other editions required buying two books, I decided to pick this one up and am extremely pleased with it. The typeface and layout are perfectly manageable and it's nice to have things like the zippy Gigue in Suite 1 complete on two pages so there's no need for a pageturn. The binding is flexible enough to let the 150-odd pages lie flat on the rack without major gyrations. It's nice to get to know more of Handel's keyboard output beyond the "Harmonious Blacksmith" variations from suite 5 and the ubiquitous Sarabande from suite 11.

The volume contains volume 2 of the Handel Gesellschaft edition of the keyboard works. HG numbers and G (Grove) numbers are given but no HWV numbers. I'm listing the complete contents with the HWV numbers for the suites which is how most recordings identify them. Highly recommended.

Beautiful edition. A pleasure to work you. Uncommonly fine attention to detail in the reproduction of the score. The binding is firm and will obviously last over years of use.

There is a lot of music for the money here. The pieces are well laid out. The trouble is that there are no fingering suggestions. Some of these suites are like three part harmony, so you have to figure out which hand is going to play the third part, which is not so trivial sometimes. You therefore have to enjoy the puzzle of figuring that out at the front end before you can get really playing. That said, some of the music in here is absolutely gorgeous and under-recognized in my opinion. Check out Keith Jarrett's recording of the Händel piano suites too. Enjoy.
