Tune of the Day: Giga by Braun

from “Pièces sans basse”

This gigue is the second of Jean-Daniel Braun's Pièces sans basse for flute or bassoon, published in Paris in 1740 together with Braun's Flute Sonata in E minor. These solo pieces are usually attributed to Braun, even though the front page states that they are “by the same author as well as by various others”.
