Tune of the Day: Adagio by Quantz

from Sonata No. 1 in A minor

This Adagio constitutes the first movement of Johann Joachim Quantz's Sonata No. 1 in A minor for flute and continuo. It is one of the many works for flute that Quantz composed for his student and patron Frederick II, King of Prussia.

Thanks to Blas from Spain for suggesting this piece!
