SICILIANO. German, Air (3/4 time). A Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The melody is from German baroque composer Georg Philipp Telemann (1681-1767) from his "Concerto for Oboe d’amore and Strings in A" (TWV 51). Although not originally composed as a waltz, it is employed as such at contra dances.
