Tune of the Day: Adagio by Loeillet
from Sonata in C major
This piece, alternating slow and quick sections, is the opening movement of a Recorder Sonata in C major by Belgian Baroque composer Jean-Baptiste Loeillet, who is often called Loeillet de Gant (or Loeillet of Ghent) to avoid confusion with his cousin, Jean-Baptiste Loeillet of London, who also was a well-known musician and composer.
Thanks to Jean-Pierre for suggesting this piece!
