Tune of the Day: Courante à la Française by Montéclair
for two flutes
This courante “in the French style” is the fifth 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.
