Tune of the Day: Larghetto by Handel

from Sonata in F major

Today's work is George Frideric Handel's Sonata in F major for Recorder and Basso continuo, composed around 1725. The sonata opens with a stately Larghetto in which the recorder's phrases begin on the offbeats. The melody is simple and slow-paced, and lends itself well to ornamentation.

Thanks to Zaq for suggesting this piece!
