Tune of the Day: Alla breve by Quantz
from Sonata No. 2 in B-flat major
This lively “Alla breve” is the central movement of Johann Joachim Quantz's Sonata No. 2 in B-flat major for flute and continuo. It is one of the many works for flute that Quantz composed for his student and patron Frederick II, King of Prussia.
