Tune of the Day: Giga by Corelli

from Trio Sonata in G minor, transcribed for two flutes

This beautiful Giga is the third and final movement of Italian Baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli's Trio Sonata No. 6 in G minor, published in 1685, which is a classical sonata da camera (“chamber sonata”), formed by a sequence of dance movements. This particular sonata has only 3 movements instead of 4 (the Sarabanda is missing), but the final Giga is a real jewel!

Thanks to Mario for contributing this piece!
