Product Information

Handel - Minuet from "Berenice" arranged for intermediate piano solo
This Minuet forms the slow section of the Overture from Handel's opera "Berenice", first performed in Covent Garden, London in 1737. Despite the opera being unsuccessful at the time, the minuet achieved its own popularity and has remained a popular request at weddings to this day.

There are many piano arrangements available of this music, but this version has been accurately transcribed from the composer's original music scored for strings, oboes and basso continuo. Handel's minimal orchestration (a copy of the score is included for reference in this digital download) translates to a simple piano transcription suitable for piano/keyboard players of Intermediate ability.

Players unfamiliar with the music's original key of E flat major might be more comfortable playing the C major version which is included in the price (the digital download consists of an arrangement of the Minuet in E flat major, the same arrangement in C major and a copy of the original orchestrated score).

Electronic keyboard players can achieve an authentic Baroque sound by using a combination of voices such as strings and harpsichord.
