Tune of the Day: Menuets by Handel

from “Water Music”, arranged for flute and piano

These two lovely minuets are part of Suite No. 3 in G major from George Frideric Handel's Water Music. While the first of the two minuets was originally scored for a small string ensemble (two violins playing in unison, a viola and continuo), the second minuet also called for a piccolo (or possibly a recorder in G) to play in unison with the violins.

Thanks to Philip for suggesting this piece!
