Tune of the Day: Gavotte by Telemann
This gavotte constitutes the second movement of an Overture-Suite in G major written by the prolific Baroque composer Georg Philipp Telemann. The present arrangement has been derived from a manuscript made by Christoph Graupner, who was both a friend and associate of Telemann himself. He was also a harpsichordist and a composer in his own right, and wrote a huge number of works.
There is a recording of this work titled Ouverture in G major, for Violin Concertato, 2 Oboes, 2 Violins, Viola and Harpsichord, Mus. Ms. 1034/63 by ensemble Musica Aeterna, conductor Jan Kleinbussink, released by Slovart Records in 1995.
