Tune of the Day: Andante by Hummel

from Sonata for Flute and Piano in D major

Johann Nepomuk Hummel was an Austrian pianist and composer of the Classical and early Romantic period, prolific in a variety of genres.

His Sonata for Flute and Piano in D major, Opus 50, was written in Vienna between 1810 and 1814. The alternative of violin to flute is also allowed, but this is undoubtedly a commercial concession, since the music is well suited to the wind instrument. Today we present the second movement, a slow Andante in 6/8 time.

Thanks to Paulien for suggesting this movement!
