Tune of the Day: Allegro by Handel

from Flute Sonata in E minor

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 fourth movement, the only Allegro in the sonata, was plucked by Handel from his Violin Sonata in D minor, but was significantly revised to meet the needs of the flute.
