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.

Thanks to Joyce Kai for contributing this piece!
