Tune of the Day: Vivace by Telemann

from Canonic Sonata for Two Flutes No.1

Telemann's Canonic Sonatas are duo sonatas, with both musicians playing from the same part. The first player begins, and the second player echoes, one measure behind. Published in 1723, the collection was originally entitled Six Canons or Sonatas for two German Flutes or two Violins, Compos'd by Georg Philip Telemann.

The Vivace we present today is the very first movement in the collection. It is sometimes found transposed to B-flat major, but the original edition has it in G major.
