Tune of the Day: Adagio by Handel
This is the opening movement of a sonata in B minor for flute and keyboard that is thought to have been composed by George Frideric Handel. First published in 1730, the sonata is referred to as Halle Sonata No. 3 (“Hallenser Sonate Nr. 3” in German). Its authenticity is uncertain; in fact, of the three “Halle” sonatas, it is the best candidate for not having been composed by Handel, although if it wasn't, it is an extremely good imitation of his style.
Thanks to Cesar from Brazil for suggesting this piece!
