Toccata in G minor, HWV 586 -- Urtext


This Toccata in G minor, HWV 586 by George Frideric Handel was probably composed in the years 1710 to 1720.

It thus belongs to the Baroque period.

Please note that this sheet music includes suggestions for performing the ornaments (here, trills and mordents) in accordance with the performance practice of the Baroque period.

Namely, trills begin ON the beat, on the upper auxiliary note.

More or less repercussions may be added depending on the pianist's taste and ability.

We suggest adding cadential trills to measures 14, 18 and 20 even though Handel did not specifically write them.

Such cadential trills were customarily added by musicians during the Baroque period.

Duration : 01:28
