    Default Please help identify the music

    My Mother's friend was going to music school and taught my mother to play this music when she was younger. She never knew the name of the composition and lost contact with her friend.

    I recorded my mother playing it (she is self-taught so the sound might not be best). Hoping someone could help me find out anything about it please.

    Here it is:

    Thanks in advance!

    It's Handel's Passacaglia, originally for harpsichord.

    Your mother plays very nicely, by the way!
    And here's a rather funny video of the piece being played by two actors in the roles of George Handel and Domenico Scarlatti.
