Tune of the Day: Fantasia for Solo Flute No. 7

by Georg Philipp Telemann

Telemann's seventh Fantasia for solo flute is in the majestic key of D major. The opening movement, rightly marked “Alla Francese”, has the attitude of a French overture, and sports a series of regal dotted rhythms, which are usually played in a very incisive manner. A rondeau in 3/8 time follows, which culminates in a repetition of the initial rhythmic pattern. A ternary-form Presto closes this Fantasia in worthy manner, reverting back to 4/4 time and introducing a very fast, brilliant final theme.
