Today we propose the second movement from a sonata for violin and basso continuo in F major, HWV 370, first published in 1732. It was originally thought to have been composed by George Frideric Handel, but modern scholars consider this doubtful, and have labelled it as “spurious”.
Today's tune is taken from a collection kindly donated to us by piper Roddy Campbell from the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. This fast reel was composed by his son, Rory, who recorded it in his 2001 album Nusa.
Today we propose the fourth piece from 18 Studi o Soli per flauto (“18 Studies or Solos for flute”) by 19th-century Italian flutist and composer Giulio Briccialdi.
This is the fourth movement of a flute trio in D major, QV 3:3.2, by Baroque flutist and composer Johann Joachim Quantz. This trio was probably written between 1726 and 1727, while Quantz was staying in Paris as part of his extended educational journey.
This is the third and last movement of Johann Joachim Quantz's Sonata in C minor for flute and continuo, QV 1: Anh. 5. As the “Anh.” (“Anhang”, German for annex) in the opus number suggests, the attribution of this sonata to Quantz is questioned by scholars.
This jig appears to be unique to Francis O'Neill's early-20th-century collections Music of Ireland (1903) and The Dance Music of Ireland (1907), both published in Chicago.
Today's piece is the forty-first study from 48 Études pour hautbois ou saxophone, composed around 1835 by German oboist and clarinetist Franz Wilhelm Ferling.
