Tune of the Day: Gigue by Montéclair
for two flutes
This gigue “in the Italian style” is the ninth 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.
