Tune of the Day: Pastorella by Vinci
from Flute Sonata in D major
Totally unrelated to the more famous 15th-century polymath Leonardo da Vinci, Leonardo Vinci was an early 18th-century Italian composer, best known for his operas. His sonata in D major for flute, of which we present today the idyllic fourth movement, is one of the few of his instrumental works to be still played today.
