Organ concerto movement in D minor, HWV317/ii

composer
Concerti Grossi, Op 3

 
This movement first appeared (scored with solo violin) at the end of the Overture to Il Pastor Fido (1712) but was probably used by Handel in one of his oratorio performances during 1733–34. Several corrections have been made to the solo part of this movement, although we have retained the spurious bar 51—which Walsh added in all the partbooks at the point of a page-turn in the solo organ copy, where he amusingly prints ‘volto subito’!

Ce mouvement apparut d’abord (dans une instrumentation avec violon seul) à la fin de l’Ouverture de Il Pastor Fido (1712) mais il fut probablement utilisé par Haendel dans l’un des oratorios qui furent joués en 1733–34. Plusieurs corrections ont été apportées à la partie en solo de ce mouvement, bien que nous ayons retenu la fallacieuse mesure 51—que Walsh ajouta à toutes les parties à l’endroit où l’on tourne la page dans la copie pour orgue seul, où il imprima l’amusante indication «volto subito»!

Diese Satz erschien zuerst (in der Instrumentierung mit einer Solovioline) am Ende der Ouvertüre zu Il Pastor Fido (1712), wurde von Händel jedoch wahr­scheinlich in einer seiner Oratorienaufführungen der Jahre 1733–34 verwendet. Im Soloteil dieses Satzes wurden mehrere Korrekturen vorgenommen, wobei wir jedoch den fragwürdigen Takt 51 beibehielten, den Walsh für sämtliche Parts an dem Punkt einfügt, wo im Exemplar für die Soloorgel umgeblättert wird. Hier druckte er amüsanterweise „volto subito“!
