Tune of the Day: Two Badines by Montéclair

for two flutes

These two badines constitute the fifth movement of the first 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 overall structure of the piece is ABBCCBA.
