Tune of the Day: Adagio by Handel

from Flute Sonata in E minor

This short and simple Adagio in E minor is the third movement of Georg Frideric Handel's Sonata in E minor for Flute, Op. 1, No. 1b. It makes a good exercise in Baroque ornamentation; listen to the sample recording for some ideas.

Thanks to Grise from Poland for suggesting this piece!
