Tune of the Day: Menuet II

from Suite in A minor by G.P. Telemann

The Ouverture-Suite in A minor, TWV 55:a2 contains two consecutive minuets. While the first is played by the strings alone, the second one features the flute as its leading instrument. This second movement is titled, in the French style, “Menuet II”. It will perfectly lend itself to a study in Baroque articulation.

Thanks to Greg for suggesting this piece!
