Tune of the Day: Allegro by Bellinzani
from Recorder Sonata in F major
This is the second movement of the fifth 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.
This movement has actually no tempo indication in the original manuscript, but it usually appears as an “Allegro” in modern editions.
