Organ Concerto in B flat major, Op 7 No 1
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Op 7 No 1 in B flat major was completed on 17 February 1740 and first performed ten days later at the premiere of L’Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato at Lincoln’s Inn Fields. The fugal fourth movement is taken from a movement (originally in A major) from the Concerto grosso Op 6 No 11 while the final Bourrée is based on a theme by Gottlieb Muffat whose music Handel made generous use of in his later instrumental music.
