Tune of the Day: Lentement & Légèrement by Naudot
from Babiole No. 6 for two flutes
This is the opening movement of the sixth of Jacques-Christophe Naudot's 6 Babioles pour 2 Vieles, Musettes, Flutes-a-bec, Flutes traversieres, Haubois, ou Violons, sans Basse. The slow (Lentement) 3/4-time prelude is followed without pauses by a more lively but still “light” (Légèrement) 3/8-time main section, which also briefly explores the parallel minor key of G minor.
