Tune of the Day: Gaiment by Naudot
from “Les plaisirs de Champigny”, transcribed for 3 flutes
This is the second movement of French composer Jacques-Christophe Naudot's Suite en trio “Les plaisirs de Champigny”, Op. 18. The piece was originally written for musette (a baroque-era instrument similar to a bagpipe, but producing a sound similar to that of the oboe), flute and violin, but it can be played as is by two flutes and a violin, or with very little modification (the little notes in the violin part) by three modern flutes.
Thanks to Joyce Kai for contributing this piece!
