Program Notes

The Sarabande is the fourth movement of Handel's Keyboard Suite in D minor (HWV 437) for solo keyboard (harpsichord), composed between 1703 and 1706. It is also referred to as Suite de pièces Vol. 2 No. 4. It was first published in 1733.

The Sarabande has two variations. The piece was used in an orchestral arrangement for Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon. Dutch singer Petra Berger used the Sarabande as the musical setting for her song about Mary, Queen of Scots, Still a Queen (In My End Is My Beginning), from her album Eternal Woman (2001). An orchestral version was also used on the first episode of the 2018 television mini-series of Agatha Christie's A.B.C. Murders.
