Concerto in F major 'No 4b'
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
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.
