Tune of the Day: Adagio by Bellinzani

from Recorder Sonata in G minor

This is the third movement of the fourth sonata from Sonate a flauto solo con cembalo, o violoncello (“Sonatas for solo flute with harpsichord or cello”) by Italian Baroque composer Paolo Benedetto Bellinzani, originally published in Venice in 1720.

The movement starts off and spends most of its time in E-flat major, but in the last three measures it modulates back to the main key of the sonata, G minor, and finally ends on a half cadence which prepares the ground for the final movement.
