Tune of the Day: Largo e dolce by J.S. Bach

from Flute Sonata No. 3 in A major

The central movement of Johann Sebastian Bach's Sonata No. 3 in A major for Flute and Harpsichord is marked “Largo e dolce”, just like the central movement of Sonata No. 1. The movement itself is in the key of A minor, with the flute singing a slow, poignant melody and the harpsichord sometimes providing restless counter material, sometimes echoing the flute.
