Tune of the Day: Allegro
from Sonata No. 1 in F major by Benedetto Marcello
Benedetto Marcello's Sonata in F major for treble recorder and figured bass is particularly noteworthy for its highly idiomatic writing for the recorder; nonetheless, this work also sounds very good when played on the flute, and can indeed be found in some of the numerous collections of baroque music compiled for our instrument.
