It took only one knowing look into contemporary sources and the idea for an arrangement was born: when Martin Lutz saw that Handel’s Sonata in G major HWV 579 for two-manual harpsichord had already been notated on four staves in the 18th century, he decided to arrange it into a concerto-like piece for two keyboard instruments. While remaining as faithful as possible to Handel’s compositional style, Lutz produced a high-quality piece that wonderfully enhances the small body of original literature for two keyboards.
