Tune of the Day: Presto by Telemann
from Partita No. 1, arranged for flute and keyboard
This Presto is the second movement, and first “aria”, of Georg Philipp Telemann's Partita No. 1 in B-flat major, TWV 41:B1, originally published in 1716 as part of the Kleine Kammermusik (“little chamber music”) collection. The original edition indicates that the melody is intended to be played by an oboe, a violin, or a flute.
