Tune of the Day: Allegro by Benedetto Marcello

from Sonata in D minor

Here is the second movement of Benedetto Marcello's Sonata in D minor for recorder and basso continuo. This binary-form Allegro is still in the key of D minor, even if the key signature used by the composer does not match modern practice. In fact, baroque music in minor keys was often written with a key signature with fewer flats than we now associate with their keys.
