Menuet and Rigaudon, from Almira (viola duo)


Title: Menuet and Rigaudon, from the opera Almira

Composer: G. F. Handel, arr. David Gable

Instrumentation: Two Violas

Printout: 2 pages

Note: Handel did some of his best instrumental writing in his operas, and these two dances from Almira demonstrate his abilities. Almira was Handel’s first opera, and its success propelled his career forward. This is excellent music for preludes, postludes and receptions.
