Tune of the Day: Adagio by Schultze

 from Sonata for two flutes in B minor

This Adagio is the opening movement of a Sonata in B minor for two flutes or recorders by a German composer named Johann Christoph Schultze. This is not to be confused with the apparently unrelated composer of the same name who was born in 1733, as this sonata was first published in Hamburg in 1729.

Tune of the Day: Adagio by Handel

 from Flute Sonata in A minor

This is the opening movement of a sonata in A minor for flute and keyboard that is thought to have been composed by George Frideric Handel. First published in 1730, the sonata is referred to as Halle Sonata No. 1 (“Hallenser Sonate Nr. 1” in German). It was supposed to be an early work composed by Handel before 1703 in his hometown Halle, but its authenticity is now considered doubtful.

Thanks to Agnese from Rome for suggesting this piece!

Tune of the Day: The Rose Tree

 Traditional English/Scottish tune

The title of this tune comes from a song set to the melody called “A Rose Tree in Full Bearing”, first appearing in print under that title in English composer William Shield's 1782 opera The Poor Soldier. Shield did not compose the melody, but rather adapted an existing, older tune, which may have been of Irish origin. In fact, the tune had previously appeared in Thompson's 24 Country Dances for the Year 1764 under the title “The Irish Lilt”. However, as Scottish music collector Alfred Moffat pointed out, this was a generic title applied to many tunes.

Today, “The Rose Tree” is quite popular throughout England and Scotland, and is often played together with “The Dashing White Sergeant”.

Tune of the Day: When Arthur first in Court began

 arranged for three flutes

This piece was originally written by the eminent English composer John Wall Wallcott (1766–1821) as a three-part glee. The lyrics were a 17th-century parody of a 16th-century ballad by Thomas Deloney, which used to be sung to a tune known as “Flying Fame”.

The present arrangement for three flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
