Tune of the Day: L'Allemande

by Michel Pignolet de Montéclair, for two flutes

This is the fourth 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, “L'Allemande”, translates literally as “The German One”; contrary to what one might think, it is not a reference to the dance of the same name.

Thanks to Marco for suggesting this piece!
