Tune of the Day: Largo by B. Marcello

from Recorder Sonata in B-flat major

This is the first movement of Benedetto Marcello's Sonata No. 7, Op. 2. Two early editions of this sonata exist: one for the recorder, published in Venice in 1712; and one for the flute, appeared in London in 1732. Both versions of this sonata are in the key of B-flat major, but the 1732 edition adopted a different numbering, and the present sonata appeared there as Op. 1, No. 6.

Thanks to Paolo for contributing this piece!
