Tune of the Day: Allemanda by Corelli
from Trio Sonata in E minor, transcribed for two flutes
This allemanda is the second movement of Italian Baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli's Trio Sonata No. 4 in E minor, published in 1685. Corelli was a violinist, and strictly speaking this sonata was originally scored for two violins and continuo; however, in those times it was common to write scores that were adaptable to different instruments, so that they could be sold to the widest possible audience, and it is evident that the concept also applies to this sonata.
