The four movements, “Air Tendre, “Courante”, “Sarabande” and “Gigue” are quite simple, and typical of the era. Ornamentation is well-chosen but will need care in its correct interpretation, particularly in the first movement.
This has a very nice chamber music feel: the interplay between the treble of the piano part and the flute in the second movement, the melodic dominance of the piano in the third, and the driving, rollicking Gigue showing off the flute, with occasional melodic bursts in the piano accompaniment.
