Tune of the Day: Allegro
from Sonata in C major by George Frideric Handel
This is the fifth and last movement of Handel's Sonata in C major for Recorder. It's a jaunty Allegro with a very active bass line, and a solo melody that lends itself well to ornamentation. The piece is made up of two sections, of 16 and 48 bars respectively.
