This study is the tenth piece from 50 Etudes mélodiques pour la flûte by French flutist and composer Jules Demersseman.
This is the closing movement of the seventh sonata from a collection of 12 “little sonatas” for two flutes by the prolific French Baroque composer Joseph Bodin de Boismortier.
This is the opening movement of the second of six sonatas for flute and continuo first published in Paris in 1732. This sonata is nicknamed “La Vibray”, a name which probably referred to some place in France.
Despite the large number of Irish titles (“The Top of Cork Road”, “The Rollicking Irishman”, etc.), this tune is probably not Irish in origin but English, as English published versions (from 1778) predate the Irish (1798). As “The Yorkshire Lasses” it can also be found in English country dance collections. The title “Father O'Flynn” comes from popular lyrics written to this tune by Alfred Perceval Graves, first published in 1874.
This is the eighth study from a collection of 18 Etudes for flute published in 1891 by Danish flutist and composer Joachim Andersen. Watch out for the accidentals!
This Andante and its accompanying variations constitute the second and final movement of the third flute duet from Six duos faciles et brillants by Danish flutist and composer Niels Peter Jensen.
Thanks to Françoise for contributing this piece!
This is the third movement of a Sonata in C major for recorder and basso continuo, written by Italian composer Benedetto Marcello around 1712.
