Tune of the Day: Two Menuets by Montéclair

from Flute Sonata No. 2 in E minor

These two minuets constitute the fourth 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. The first minuet features a petite reprise, a small section that is to be repeated (usually with added ornamentation) at the very end of the piece. The overall structure of the movement is therefore AABCBCDDEEABCC'.
