Tune of the Day: La Rieuse

by Michel Pignolet de Montéclair, for two flutes

This is the second movement of the fourth of six Concerts à deux Flutes Traversières sans Basse by the French Baroque composer Michel Pignolet de Montéclair. Here the French word concert is a synonym of “suite”, and has nothing to do with the Italian concerto. The title of the movement, “La Rieuse”, translates literally as “The Laughing One”.

Thanks to Marco for suggesting this piece!
