Tune of the Day: Largo by Locatelli

from Flute Sonata in D major

This short Largo is the opening movement of the eleventh of 12 sonatas for flute and continuo by Italian composer Pietro Antonio Locatelli, originally published in Amsterdam in 1732.

It is quite interesting how this piece takes a turn to D minor and then ends on a half cadence, even though the next movement goes back to D major straight away.
