The present editions aim to redress the balance by presenting Muffat’s acknowledged ‘recreations’ of Handel’s most famous keyboard publications. The first volume contains the 8 Suites (Suite des Pieces Pour le Clavecin, first issued in 1720), found in Muffat’s own autograph in the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin (Mus.ms 9160). The second volume includes the set of 6 Fugues (Six Fugues or Voluntarys of 1735).
While these Handel originals have been well served by modern scholarship, until now this important alternative version of the suites and fugues has never been published.
