Concerto in F major 'No 4b'

composer
ascribed as part of Handel's Concerti Grossi, Op 3

 
The scoring is the same as ‘4a’. Walsh included this concerto in his first print of Opus 3 but withdrew it a few months later (possibly at Handel’s request) and included it in his third collection of Select Harmony (also 1734) where it appears anonymously alongside concerti by Geminiani and Giacomo Facco. In fact it is a delightful work, displaying many Handelian characteristics (albeit Italian) and deserving much greater recognition.

L’orchestration est la même que pour «4a». Walsh inclut ce concerto dans sa première impression de l’Opus 3, mais le retira quelques mois plus tard (peut-être à la demande de Haendel) et l’inclut dans sa troisième collection d’Harmonie Choisie (aussi de 1734) où il apparaît de façon anonyme aux côtés de concerti par Geminiani et Giacomo Facco. C’est en fait une œuvre délicieuse, qui exhibe (toute italienne qu’elle est) maint trait haendelien, et mérite d’être bien mieux connue.

Die Instrumentierung entspricht der von „4a“. Walsh nahm dieses Konzert in seinen ersten Druck von Opus 3 auf, zog es jedoch einige Monate später wieder zurück (möglicherweise auf Händels Wunsch) und veröffentlichte es daraufhin in seiner dritten Sammlung der Select Harmony (ebenfalls 1734), wo es anonym neben Konzerten von Geminiani und Giacomo Facco auftaucht. Es ist tatsächlich ein wunderbares Werk, das viele der (obgleich italienischen) Charakteristiken Händels aufweist und grössere Anerkennung verdient.
