Individual record

[+] Roberts, John H. "Handel's Borrowings from Telemann: An Inventory." In Göttinger Händel-Beiträge 1, ed. Hans Joachim Marx, 147-71. Kassel: Bärenreiter, 1984.

Roberts provides a list of 128 items containing borrowings from three collections of works of Telemann, Harmonischer Gottes-Dienst, the Musique de Table, and the Sonates sans basse, as well as borrowings from other sources contained in the same items. After briefly describing the three Telemann sources, Roberts divides Handel's Telemann borrowings into three types: use of incipit with fresh ideas or development; use of single internal passage; and compound borrowings from one model. He then offers guidelines for analysis according to these types.
