Organ Concerto in A major, Op 7 No 2
composer

Ouverture  [2'10]
Allegro  [5'57]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Op 7 No 2 in A major was completed on 5 February 1743 and probably given its first performance at Covent Garden during the premiere of Samson a fortnight later. The first, second and fourth movements are each based on material by Muffat. In the manuscript a third movement is simply marked Organo ad libitum. For this recording a transcription of the Larghetto from the D major Violin Sonata is used.
