Tune of the Day: Allegro by Telemann
In the concluding Allegro of Telemann's Quartet for recorder, two flutes and basso continuo, the music returns to the home key of D minor. The movement is in ABA form, with a large, fluid middle part that pays a visit to the key of D major before repeating the opening section.
As always, our tempo indication of 112 beats per minute is only a suggestion. In fact, this Allegro is often played up to about 132 BPM.
