Suite No.3 In D Minor - Handel* - The Great Harpsichord Suite, Vol. 2

Also called Suites de pieces pour le Clavecin, the suites are most often sets of stylized dances, occasionally including further additional movements. The opening Prelude, marked Presto, is a fast-touch piece in common time with rapid scales and huge arpeggios concluding on a cadence marked Adagio. The following Fuga, marked Allegro, is a fast and furious movement with a thrusting chromatic subject. The Allemande, marked Andantino quasi Allegretto, is a gently flowing movement with a sighing melody.

The Courante, marked Allegretto, is a gracefully gnarly movement in triple time. The Air, marked Lento non troppo, begins with a long, pensive theme with extravagant embellishments followed by a set of five variations ranging from the dramatic to the tragic to the virtuostic.

The suite concludes with an enormous Presto in triple time that alternates between a huge chordal theme and brilliant passagework. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript.
