The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba, from Solomon


This busy Sinfonia for two oboes and strings opens the third Act of Handel’s oratorio Solomon (1748) and heralds the arrival of King Solomon’s eagerly awaited guest. In an earlier three-movement version of the piece it closes with a brief Adagio.

Cette sinfonia animée, pour deux hautbois et cordes, introduit le troisième acte de l’oratorio de Haendel, Salomon (1748), et annonce l’arrivée de l’hôte qu’attend impatiemment le roi Salomon. Dans une version antérieure en trois mouvements, ce morceau se termine par un bref adagio.
