Tune of the Day: Larghetto by Handel

from Flute Sonata in E minor by G.F. Handel

Composed circa 1720, this E minor sonata (HWV 379) is Handel's own compilation of movements taken from three other solo sonatas. Confusingly, this sonata has sometimes been numbered Op. 1, no. 1a, when in fact it never appeared in Opus 1.

The first movement is a Larghetto with an easy, gentle swing, taken from Handel's Violin Sonata in D minor.
