by Michel Pignolet de Montéclair, for two flutes
This is the fourth movement of the fourth of six Concerts à deux Flutes Traversières sans Basse by the French Baroque composer Michel Pignolet de Montéclair. Here the French word concert is a synonym of “suite”, and has nothing to do with the Italian concerto. The title of the movement, “L'Allemande”, translates literally as “The German One”; contrary to what one might think, it is not a reference to the dance of the same name.
Thanks to Marco for suggesting this piece!

This is the twelfth piece from a collection of 17 Capricci for Flauto Traverso by Italian flutist and composer Filippo Ruge. Born in Rome around 1725, Ruge appears to have spent most of his professional life in France, and especially in Paris, where several of his compositions were published, ranging from small-scale chamber music to large-scale symphonic works.

Traditional Scottish strathspey
The title of this piece comes from poet Robert Tannahill's (1774–1810) work; however, the tune was originally “The Earl of Moira's Welcome to Scotland” by Duncan MacIntyre, a Scots dancing master in London at the end of the 18th century.

from Trio Sonata in E major, transcribed for two flutes
This Allemanda is the second movement of Italian Baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli's Trio Sonata No. 10 in E major. You may notice that the key signature has only 3 sharps instead of 4, despite the piece being in E major (as testified by the numerous D-sharps). This kind of “discrepancy” was relatively common during the Baroque period.
Thanks to Mario for contributing this piece!

This jig is taken from the 1922 collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody by Francis O'Neill, who cites as a source for the tune the Rice-Walsh manuscript, a collection of music from the repertoire of Jeremiah Breen, a blind Irish fiddler, notated by his student.
