Tune of the Day: Menuets by Naudot
from Babiole No. 5 for two flutes
This pair of minuets constitutes the closing 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 second part of both minuets features a so-called petite reprise (“small repetition”), a typically Baroque device where the last few measures of a repeated section are repeated again at the end.
