Tune of the Day: Adagio by Handel

from Flute Sonata in A minor

This is the opening movement of a sonata in A 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. 1 (“Hallenser Sonate Nr. 1” in German). It was supposed to be an early work composed by Handel before 1703 in his hometown Halle, but its authenticity is now considered doubtful.

Thanks to Agnese from Rome for suggesting this piece!
