Tune of the Day: Adagio by Handel

from Flute Sonata in E minor

This is the opening Adagio of Handel's Halle Sonata No. 2. The flute strives slowly up the scale over a more quickly descending figure in the bass, then levels off into a series of gently rolling phrases.

This is a transcription of the opening movement of Handel's Oboe Sonata in C minor.
