Tune of the Day: Inventione by Braun

from “Pièces sans basse”

This is the thirteenth 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”.

This piece is unique in Braun's collection in that it features the appearance of a second voice during sustained trills. We are not entirely certain as to whether the composer intended these additional notes to be played inside the trill, breaking it, or if a second player is required to play them; we are however more inclined towards the latter hypothesis.
