Tune of the Day: Adagio by Bach

from Flute Sonata in G minor

Here is the second movement from the Sonata in G minor for flute and harpsichord, BWV 1020, usually attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach or to his son Carl Philipp Emanuel. In this Adagio, the flute sings a melody that grows from many long-held tones, while the harpsichord provides a steady eighth-note accompaniment.
