Tune of the Day: Allegro by Handel

from Flute Sonata in B minor

This Allegro is the second 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 for contributing this piece!
