Tune of the Day: Prélude by Montéclair

for two flutes

This is the opening movement of the fifth 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.
