Handel - Flute Sonata in D major (III. Adagio)

Sheet music for flute

Info: First published only in 1979, the manuscript carries an attribution to one Weisse, probably Johann Sigismund Weiss. Although academics believe it to be Handel's work because several of this sonata's themes appear in other Handel pieces. Like other Handel's flute sonatas, this follows the slow-fast-slow-fast church sonata format.
Opus number: HWV 378

Born: 23 February 1685, Halle

The artist: German, later British Baroque composer who spent the bulk of his career in London, becoming well known for his operas, oratorios, anthems, and organ concertos. Born in a family indifferent to music, Handel received critical training in Halle, Hamburg and Italy before settling in London in 1712; he became a naturalised British subject in 1727. He was strongly influenced both by the great composers of the Italian Baroque and the middle-German polyphonic choral tradition.
