Concerto No 6 in D major, HWV317/337
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
In Concerto No 6 the scoring is as for ‘4a’ with solo flute (and solo organ in the appendix). The first and third movements presented here come from Handel’s Overture and ‘Battle Symphony’ for his opera Ottone (1722). The slow movement, specifically for flute, violin, archlute, cello and double bass, is to be found together with the third movement (and a dubious introduction) as an Overture in D (HWV337) in a manuscript at The British Museum, London. Although not proven, it seems likely from a detailed study of the paper of the autographs that these three movements belong together. In Walsh’s original publication only the first movement appeared, coupled incongruously with our appendixed Allegro, actually Handel’s first published organ concerto.
