Tune of the Day: Adagio
from Sonata in G minor by George Frideric Handel
Here is the third movement of Handel's Recorder Sonata in G minor. It's an extremely compact Adagio in 3/2 time, which visits the key of F minor but soon returns to G minor, ending on a half cadence.
We now have the full set: Larghetto, Andante, Adagio, Presto.
