Tune of the Day: Minuet in G major by Beethoven

Transcribed for solo flute

Ludwig van Beethoven composed this Minuet in G major around 1796. It was originally written for orchestra, but the original setting is now lost, and only an arrangement for piano has survived. Its elegant main theme, one of the composer's most memorable early melodies, demonstrates his skill at fashioning attractive light music.

Thanks to Małgorzata from Poland for suggesting this piece!
