Tune of the Day: Cantabile by Quantz
from Sonata No. 5 in E minor
This is the highly-syncopated opening movement of Johann Joachim Quantz's Sonata No. 5 in E minor for flute and continuo. It is one of many works for flute that Quantz composed for his student and patron Frederick II, King of Prussia.
