Tune of the Day: Plainte by Montéclair

for two flutes

This plainte (a French term indicating a slow composition with a lamenting character) constitutes the seventh 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.
