Tune of the Day: Amoroso by Schultze
from Sonata for two flutes in B minor
This 6/8-time Amoroso (Italian for “loving”) is the third movement of a Sonata in B minor for two flutes or recorders by a German composer named Johann Christoph Schultze. This is not to be confused with the apparently unrelated composer of the same name who was born in 1733, as this sonata was first published in Hamburg in 1729.
