This is the opening movement of a Sonata in G major for recorder and basso continuo, written by Italian composer Benedetto Marcello around 1712.
This English melody, which may be a song air, appears in the 1840 music manuscript collection of John Rook of Wigton.
This Allegro in G major is the third study from Danish flutist and composer Joachim Andersen's Twenty-Four Etudes for Flute, Op. 30.
This is the third and final movement of the first 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 closing movement of Johann Joachim Quantz's Sonata No. 5 in E minor for flute and continuo. It is one of many works for flute that Quantz composed for his student and patron Frederick II, King of Prussia.
This old-time tune was derived from “Angelina Baker”, a sentimental song by the great American songwriter Stephen Foster. It is a popular fiddle or banjo tune, and is also played by bluegrass musicians.
Thanks to David for suggesting this tune!
The little study we present today is the first piece from 50 Etudes mélodiques pour la flûte by French flutist and composer Jules Demersseman.
