Can someone tell me where I can find all of the variations for the Sarabande in d minor by Handel? I assume that he wrote more than 2 variations.

Why?  Two seems sufficient lengthwise - it's part of a suite.  Do you have any evidence of any more, like a recording?

EDIT:  The first edition is on IMSLP, and has only the two variations - and no room for missing others as it moves straight to the "Jigg".

I have heard the Sarabande in a television program where the pianist played quite a few more variations--perhaps his own creations or improvisations?

Possibly. Also, Handel was an inveterate recycler of his own work, so there may well be other variations spread across his works (including for different forces) that the pianist in question drew upon.

Actually - what you heard is probably this, though I can't find sheet music for it.
