composed by Handel
The original is a piece in Harpsichord Suite No.4 HWV437. It consists of a theme and two variations. The arrangement for Violin and Viola by Johan Halvorsen (1864-1935), a Norwegian composer, is very popular, however, requires high technical skills. This arrangement is for String Quartet and not so difficult in technique. Every music note is faithful to the original and enjoyable for all the players.
