George Frideric Handel, who introduced several innovations in his vocal works, was quite conservative in his instrumental music. At the same time, he also created works of the highest quality in this field – such as, for example, for the violin. His seven violin sonatas were not conceived as an interconnected whole, but composed at different times. As fully-formed thoroughbass sonatas, they breathe vitality and freshness, and offer a wealth of melodies typical of this composer.
