Tune of the Day: Andante by 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 second movement is a chirping Andante transposed from Handel's Recorder Sonata in G minor, Op. 1/2.
