Tune of the Day: The Flower Duet

 from “Lakmé” by Léo Delibes
Flowers

This is one of those tunes that everybody knows, though very few know its name. It is taken from a Romantic opera by Léo Delibes, composed in the 1880s. Included in the work entitled Lakmé, the “flower duet” still fascinates listeners by the intensity of emotion it triggers. This is the reason for which it has been included in so many advertisements (particularly for British Airways) and movie soundtracks, not to mention its over-use by television shows.

There are a couple of things which might trouble you when trying to play this piece. The most noticeable one is perhaps its key, which demands the use of five sharp notes. The other one is its syncopated rhythm, with rests on most of the downbeats. But don't be afraid, you really just need to think of the musicality of the piece.

Tune of the Day: Por una cabeza

 Tango, arranged for flute and piano

This famous tango song was composed in 1935 by French-born Argentine singer Carlos Gardel. The title is a Spanish horse-racing phrase meaning “by a head”, which refers to a horse winning (or losing) a race narrowly – by just the length of its head. The lyrics, written by journalist Alfredo Le Pera, speak of a compulsive horse-track gambler who compares his addiction for horses with his attraction to women.

The tune has been featured in numerous films, including Scent of a Woman (1992), Schindler's List (1993), and True Lies (1994).

Thanks to Jenna for suggesting this piece!
