Here now the Air en Rondeau from the same Sonata.
Mattheson's biography knows some interesting anecdotes, some of which I would like to relate in the course of this series.

In 1703 he met George Frideric Handel here and struck up a lifelong, if not unproblematic, friendship. They exchanged knowledge intensively, even when it came to tangible disputes over musical views. During a performance of Mattheson's opera Cleopatra, a dispute arose over musical direction that ended in a duel. A button on Handel's jacket prevented serious injury. The adversaries reconciled that same evening. However, Mattheson apparently felt that Handel held him in low esteem throughout his life.

But now have fun with this transcription/composition.
