Tune of the Day: Favorite Gallopade

 for two flutes

This flute duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833. After the title, a mysterious “Mrs. G.” is referenced, possibly a singer with whom the tune was associated at the time. Several compositions were published in the early 19th-century under the title “Favorite Gallopade”, but unfortunately we were unable to track the origins of this particular piece. If you recognize the tune, please let us know!

Tune of the Day: The Kalandar Prince from Scheherazade

 by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov

Today we present a transcription for solo flute of the themes from “The Kalandar Prince”, the second movement of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's 1888 symphonic suite Scheherazade.

The first part of the Andantino, played by a bassoon in the original, provides some excellent low-register practice. If your flute doesn't have a B foot, you can simply skip straight to the oboe reprise at measure 26, which is largely the same but one octave higher.

Thanks to Janset for suggesting this piece!

Tune of the Day: The Lamentation of Aughrim

 Traditional Irish air

The Battle of Aughrim, fought on July 12th 1691 near Ballinasloe, County Galway, pitted the Irish forces against the English. The Irish Commander, General St. Ruth, and some 7000 of his troops were killed, the “flower of their army and nation”. It was a devastating defeat, and the cause of much sorrow in Ireland. In Minstrelsy of Ireland (1897), Alfred Moffat says the air “probably dates from the terrible battle”.

Thomas Moore used the melody for his song “Forget not the Field” in Volume VII of his Irish Melodies (1818).
