Organ Concerto in G minor, Op 7 No 5

composer

 
Op 7 No 5 in G minor was completed on 31 January 1750. Handel performed it during the premiere of Theodora at Covent Garden on 16 March. The material of the fifth movement was part of the overture to Alceste and was later incorporated into the oratorio Jephtha. To the original five movements Smith added a sixth (a Gavotte) which he adapted from an earlier concerto (Op 4 No 3).

Le matériau du cinquième mouvement, qui faisait partie de l’ouverture d’Alceste, fut incorporé par la suite à l’oratorio Jephtha. Smith ajouta un sixième mouvement aux cinq mouvements originaux – une Gavotte adaptée d’un concerto antérieur (op.4 no3).
