Tune of the Day: Affettuoso by Handel

from Violin Sonata in D major

Today we propose the opening movement from a sonata for violin and basso continuo in D major, HWV 371, composed by George Frideric Handel around 1750. Handel's manuscript bears the indication “afetuoso”, a misspelling of the Italian affettuoso meaning “affectionate” or “tender”.
