Tune of the Day: Fantasia for Solo Flute No. 12

by Georg Philipp Telemann

Here is another miniature gem from the Baroque era, Telemann's twelfth and last Fantasia for Solo Flute. This Fantasia is in the key of G minor, and starts off with a slow Grave written in an almost vocal style, that soon leaves place to a lively Allegro; the two tempos alternate a couple times before introducing a “sweet” Dolce built on arpeggios and slow large intervals. Another short Allegro makes its appearance before culminating in the final Presto, written in the style of a bourrée.

With this piece, we now have all of the Telemann Fantasias!
