The concluding Presto lets the flute sing over a jogging bass line; this, like the Andante, originated in the Recorder Sonata in G minor. The opening Adagio is a wistful piece whose dotted rhythms and other patterns suggest a morose, stretched-out gigue. The second movement, Allegro, is considerably brighter, though remaining in the minor mode, and builds tension at several points by repeating a brief phrase at ever-higher pitches or simply giving the flute a precarious little climb up the scale.
The second Adagio, the sonata's most extended movement, is a meditation tinged with melancholy that, unlike the first movement, could function quite well without the continuo line. The second Adagio seems specific to this sonata; it is pensive, and so short that it comes off as a mere transition to the final Allegro.
The latter piece features a quick but rather monotonous theme that evokes a child running up and down three shallow stairs; this is another melody recycled into the Trio Sonata, HWV Oboists often stake a claim to it, especially when the work is transposed to F major; they maintain that the trumpet-like call in the Allegro is particularly oboe-like, although they concede that the Minuet is rather awkward for the oboe in this key.

Over a stately harpsichord accompaniment, the flute delivers a long-lined melody punctuated by brief sighing phrases. This leads with an unresolved cadence to the Allegro, which launches itself with the aforementioned stuttering trumpet call. The motif reappears frequently, and provides the basis of much of the harpsichord accompaniment, while the flute spins out highly florid melodic lines. A second Adagio begins with a falling, stepwise figure in the continuo, whereupon the flute develops a broader, pensive melody that allows for generous ornamentation.
Its duration is less a matter of tempo than how many repeats the performers choose to observe. The opening Adagio finds the flute striving slowly up the scale over a more quickly descending figure in the bass, then leveling off into a series of gently rolling phrases. The third movement, Grave, is a florid, pastoral little piece that scholars suspect to be the work of some other composer.
The courtly concluding Minuet, though, is clearly Handelian, a transcription of an early G minor harpsichord piece. Descriptions from: www.
