Tune of the Day: John Sobieski's Quick Step

 Traditional tune, arranged for two flutes

This flute duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833.

The title probably refers to Jan III Sobieski, who was king of Poland from 1674 until his death in 1696. Sobieski was an able military commander, most famous for his victory over the Turks at the 1683 Battle of Vienna. Very popular among his subjects, he briefly restored the kingdom of Poland-Lithuania to greatness for the last time.

Tune of the Day: Le Dolgelsheim

 from “Amusement de Bellone”

This piece is the fourth movement of Amusement de Bellone, a suite for solo instrument (“musette, vielle, flute and oboe” according to the original edition) and continuo by the French Baroque composer Nicolas Chédeville.

We could not find any reputable information on the meaning of the title. However: there is a small town in Germany called Dolgesheim, and it is located right next to another small town called Weinolsheim. Since the next movement in Amusement de Bellone is titled “Le Weynolsheim”, we're inclined to think that this is more than just a coincidence.

Tune of the Day: Merrily Danced the Quaker

 Traditional Scottish jig

The earliest known appearance of this melody in print is in Rutherford's Choice Collection of Sixty of the Most Celebrated Country Dances, which was published in London in 1750. However, the tune is probably much older; some sources even trace it back to 14th-century plain chant. Other sources think that “Merrily Danced” was either derived from “The Mill Oh”, or that both tunes share a common origin.

The melody was well-known in America at the time of the War for Independence, where it was employed as both a quick march and dance tune.

Tune of the Day: Sarabanda by Corelli

 from Trio Sonata in B-flat major, transcribed for two flutes

This is the third movement of Italian Baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli's Trio Sonata No. 5 in B-flat major, published in 1685. Like the other Op. 2 sonatas, this is a sonata da camera (“chamber sonata”) for two melodic instruments (e.g. two violins, or two flutes) and basso continuo. It was intended not only for professional musicians, but also for the private enjoyment of refined amateurs.

Thanks to Mario for contributing this piece!

Tune of the Day: Alpiglen

 by Peter Pope, for flute and guitar

This delightful short piece for flute and guitar was kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, guitarist Peter Pope.

“Alpiglen” is a short evocation of those moments walking in the Jungfrau Region (Switzerland), when after an arduous (but rewarding) uphill trek, a spectacular view of the Alps opens up at the top of a ridge or around a bend.

Many thanks for sharing your music with us, Peter!
