Harp Concerto in B flat major, Op 4 No 6

Larghetto  [4'05]
Allegro moderato  [2'41]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Op 4 No 6 in B flat major was written as a Harp Concerto. In that guise it was first performed on 19 February 1736 along with the Organ Concerto Op 4 No 1 at the premiere of Alexander’s Feast. Walsh included it in the Op 4 set as an Organ Concerto but it is Handel’s original version with harp that is recorded here.
