Tune of the Day: Allemanda by Corelli

from Trio Sonata in B minor, transcribed for two flutes

This Allemanda is the second movement of Italian Baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli's Trio Sonata No. 8 in B minor, published in 1685. It is worth noting that, like the preceding prelude, this movement starts with the three notes B, C, D; this gives an idea of a thematic connection between the differently developed sections. This piece also contains examples of the so called “Corelli bumps” (for instance, at the start of measures 12 and 20), which move the piece forward, even if it is a calm Largo.

Thanks to Mario for contributing this piece!
