Tune of the Day: Triste by Telemann

from Sonata in F minor

The first movement of Georg Philipp Telemann's Sonata in F minor for bassoon and basso continuo is marked “Triste”, which in Italian literally means “sad”. Indeed, right in the opening of the movement the composer creates a peculiar atmosphere by a very effective use of a mournful triplet figure, which may sound a bit surprising to the unprepared listener.
