Tune of the Day: Largo by Benedetto Marcello

from Sonata in D minor

The third movement of Benedetto Marcello's Sonata in D minor for recorder and basso continuo is in the key of F major, even if the original manuscript retains the baroque key signature of D minor, with no flats nor sharps. This Largo is proposed in its original unornamented form, but, as is usual with baroque music, this simplicity should encourage the player to add in his own ornamentations.
