In the Concerto Grosso 1985 (subtitled "to Handel's Sonata in D for violin and continuo, first movement"), we encounter again the creative use of constructive devices that gives Zwilich's music its consistency and emotional drive. This work was commissioned by the Washington Friends of Handel in commemoration of the 300th anniversary of George Frideric Handel's birth. As the subtitle suggests, an opening thematic gambit from a Handel violin sonata becomes the generative force of the entire five-movement work.

Reviews
"The whole piece becomes a study in musical obsession that would surely startle its Baroque progenitor, although it proves to be, after all, a friendly handshake across the centuries." - Alan Rich, LA Herald
