Tune of the Day: Allegro by Handel

from Violin Sonata in G minor

This Allegro is the second movement of Georg Frideric Handel's Violin Sonata in G minor, HWV 364a, composed around 1722-24. Early editions indicate that the work is for oboe, even though it contains notes beyond the range of the oboe. Handel's original manuscript states that the sonata would be suitable “per la Viola da Gamba” (a Baroque-era instrument resembling a cello), suggesting that the change of instrument was probably sanctioned by the publishers, Walsh and Chrysander.
