Program Notes

The Water Music is a collection of orchestral movements, often published as three suites, composed by George Frideric Handel. It premiered on 17 July 1717, in response to King George I's request for a concert on the River Thames.

A Hornpipe made up the eighth and eleventh movements of the suite in F major, and the second movement of the suite in D Major.
