Tune of the Day: Gavotte en Rondeau by Montéclair
for two flutes
This gavotte in rondeau form is the third movement of the second 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.
