Tune of the Day: Largo by Handel

from Oboe Sonata in C minor

Handel composed his Oboe sonata in C minor, HWV 366, around 1711–1712, shortly after his arrival in London, but it was only first published in 1732.

This first movement of the sonata lacks an explicit tempo indication, but it is usually assumed to be a Largo, or sometimes an Adagio.
