Tune of the Day: Andante

from J.S. Bach's Flute Sonata in E minor

This Andante is the third movement of Bach's Flute Sonata No. 5. It begins with an extended introduction by the continuo instruments (usually harpsichord or cello), and once the flute enters with its spacious theme, the bass line repeats fairly steadily. After a variation on the theme in the melody, the final section essentially repeats the movement's opening measures.
