Handel had just left his native land of Germany to London, accepting his new position at the Royal Academy of Music. Before that, Handel had already moved to England in , spending his time based at the Burlington House before becoming house composer at Cannons in Middlesex.
The eight suites of [ edit ] Handel published his first eight harpsichord suites in with the following explanation: I have been obliged to publish some of the following Lessons, because surrepticious and incorrect Copies of them had got Abroad.
This suite consists of four movements: The Prelude, Allemande, Courante and Air and Variations; the first three movements having stylized dance rhythms. This suite was promulgated a year after Handel became Master of the Orchestra at the Royal Academy of Music , also known as the first Italian opera company in London. Neither story is true.
Henry Wylde and Richard Clark then found an old anvil in a smithy near Whitchurch , Edgware , and fabricated a story to identify William Powell as the fictitious blacksmith, when, in fact, he had been the parish clerk. They raised a subscription for a wooden memorial to him, and in , the people of Whitchurch subscribed again for a grandiloquent gravestone, still standing. He was Parish Clerk during the time the immortal Handel was organist of this church. Erected by subscription, May Windsor, Esq.
He printed the movement in a detached form, because he could sell a sufficient number of copies to make a profit. Beethoven used a similar theme for the subject of a two-part organ fugue. There also exist several early manuscript versions of this piece, in G major and entitled Chaconne. The overall shape and form of the variations are the same, but the melody as we know it is not yet fully formed, and there are significant improvements to texture and passagework throughout the later published version.
Theme[ edit ] The theme is in rounded, continuous binary form and is made up of two phrases, with the exposition beginning with the first musical phrase ending on a half cadence and the following phrase ending with a perfect authentic cadence resulting in a parallel period.
Moving eighth notes create the foundation for both the right and left hand. Upon completion of the first phrase, the tonic key is reestablished and the right hand begins to play sixteenth notes until a perfect authentic cadence in measure ten, followed by recapitulation of the second phrase.
The first measure outlines the tonic and dominant chords, followed in the next measure by a repeat of tonic and dominant chords until the fourth beat, where Handel applies a secondary dominant that leads to a [B major] chord on the first beat of the third measure. This initial motive is repeated in measures three and four, ending the first phrase on a half cadence.
The second phrase begins on the tonic chord arpeggiated, followed by a IV chord. This new phrase retains the same chord progression in measures seven and eight, ending the second phrase on a PAC. Variation One[ edit ] Variation one includes the same motivic ideas and adds arpeggiation of the chords with focus on the tonic and dominant key , B major.
Both phrases are made up of five measures, with the first ending on a half cadence and the final phrase of the variation ending on a perfect authentic cadence.
Variation Two[ edit ] The melody is switched between hands and is now played in the right hand with the left hand arpeggiating the harmonic chordal progression. The left hand plays sixteenth notes throughout this variation and the right hand only plays eighth notes, with the addition of trills in the second phrase.
The motivic structure remains the same, with focus on only the tonic and dominant keys. Variation Three[ edit ] The third variation introduces the new musical idea of sixteenth note triplets in the right hand, with the left hand playing the melody in eighth notes. Variation three has the same progression and division of musical sections, but the melody is no longer in the right hand, with the left hand arpeggiating a harmony identical in structure to the theme and both preceding variations.
Variation Four[ edit ] The penultimate variation trades the melody to the right hand, with the left hand playing sixteenth note triplets. This variation is almost identical in structure to its predecessor, with the roles of the hands switching.
Variation Five[ edit ] The fifth, and final, variation consists of impressive scale work that is played by both hands, with each run of thirty-second notes being returned with another set of thirty-second notes in the following beat, usually played by the opposite hand. The same progression and structural ideas are maintained throughout this variation, ending on a descending E major scale starting on the dominant, resulting in a final PAC.
Aunt Evelyn is heard to be playing the piece one evening and the author recalls this happy memory during his time at the Front. Shortly after, he used the first sixteen bars of his set of variations to create one of his most beloved pieces, Handel in the Strand. The composer made various versions of the work, most notably, a piano solo version
