Tune of the Day: Adagio by Blavet
from Flute Sonata No. 4
This is the opening movement of the fourth of six sonatas for flute and continuo first published in Paris in 1732. This sonata is nicknamed “La Lumague”, a Frenchization of the Italian word lumaca, meaning “The Snail”.
Thanks to Monique for suggesting this piece!
