8 Great Suites, HWV 426-433

This set of eight suites for harpsichord was published in 1720. In the virtuoso class as a performer on the harpsichord and organ, Handel improvised to a great extent, and he no doubt embellished his own performances with all sorts of ornamentation, which would have filled out the harmonies. The fine, full-bodied Dolmetsch harpsichord is recorded close, enhancing the inherent strength of the performance.
