Tune of the Day: Gracieusement by Naudot
from Babiole No. 5 for two flutes
This “gracious” piece constitutes the opening movement of the fifth of Jacques-Christophe Naudot's 6 Babioles pour 2 Vieles, Musettes, Flutes-a-bec, Flutes traversieres, Haubois, ou Violons, sans Basse. The French term babiole humbly indicates something of little value or importance, a trifle.
