Tune of the Day: Two Menuets by Montéclair

 from Flute Sonata No. 2 in E minor

These two minuets constitute the fourth movement of the second 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 first minuet features a petite reprise, a small section that is to be repeated (usually with added ornamentation) at the very end of the piece. The overall structure of the movement is therefore AABCBCDDEEABCC'.

Tune of the Day: Greig's Pipes

 Traditional Irish reel and strathspey

According to John Glen's volume Early Scottish Melodies (1900), this tune is a composition of James Greig, a teacher of dancing in Ayrshire, in south-west Scotland. The melody must date back at least to the mid-18th century, as it appears in the Gillespie Manuscript of Perth (1768).

Tune of the Day: Allegro maestoso by Mercadante

This is the first movement from the first of Tre duetti concertanti per due flauti (“Three concertante duets for two flutes”) by Italian composer Saverio Mercadante.
