Tune of the Day: Fantasia for Solo Flute No. 12
Here is another miniature gem from the Baroque era, Telemann's twelfth and last Fantasia for Solo Flute. This Fantasia is in the key of G minor, and starts off with a slow Grave written in an almost vocal style, that soon leaves place to a lively Allegro; the two tempos alternate a couple times before introducing a “sweet” Dolce built on arpeggios and slow large intervals. Another short Allegro makes its appearance before culminating in the final Presto, written in the style of a bourrée.
With this piece, we now have all of the Telemann Fantasias!
