Creating piano reductions of previously unreduced works, transpositions of vocal scores, ornamentation notation, instrumental parts, score arrangements, and more.
Handel Reductions was launched in January of 2016 by tenor Christopher Sokolowski, a lover of the Baroque era, and a particularly lover of the repertoire of George Frideric Handel.
"There is a vast repertoire of exquisite music that remains largely unapproachable by vocalists, and thus inaccessible to audiences due to its unavailability in a reduced-score format. It was Handel's vocal works composed in Italy during the very early 18th century, such as Il trionfo del tempo and his many secular cantatas, that urged me to help fill this void in the music publishing world. The 'greatest hits' of Handel are certainly masterpieces for just reasons, but to neglect the rest of his output, which is just as magnificent, is unfortunate for musicians and music lovers alike."
