Tune of the Day: Affettuoso by Telemann

from “Sonates sans Basse à deux Flutes traverses”

Here is the third movement from the fourth of Telemann's Sonates sans Basse à deux Flutes traverses, ou à deux Violons, ou à deux Flutes à bec, or “Sonatas without Bass for Two Transverse Flutes, or Two Violins, or Two Recorders”. This slow movement is marked “Affettuoso”, which in Italian literally means “affectionate”, “tender”, “warm-hearted”.
