Tune of the Day: Les Chi-en-lit
Flute duet by J.B. de Boismortier
This is the third duet in G major from the 55 Easy Pieces collection by Baroque composer Joseph Bodin de Boismortier. The French title “Les Chi-en-lit” refers to a typical character of the Paris Carnival, an event that has been held at least since the 16th century.
