Tune of the Day: Courante à l'Italienne by Montéclair

for two flutes

This courante “in the Italian style” is the sixth 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.
