Named after Prussian general Ludwig Yorck von Wartenburg (1759–1830), this military march was composed by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1808 as “Marsch für die böhmische Landwehr” (“March for the Bohemian Militia”).
It is one of the most important German military marches, and is played quite often. In particular, it is the traditional march of the Wachbataillon, the German Bundeswehr's elite drill unit, and is played as the first march at the Grand Tattoo (Großer Zapfenstreich).

Today we propose the second study from 24 Tägliche Studien (24 Daily Studies) by German flutist and composer Anton Bernhard Fürstenau, first published in Berlin in 1839.
Dating back to the early 19th century, this traditional Irish tune has been the vehicle for numerous songs. The present arrangement for two flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833.
This is the fourth and final movement of the fifth sonata from Sonate a flauto solo con cembalo, o violoncello (“Sonatas for solo flute with harpsichord or cello”) by Italian Baroque composer Paolo Benedetto Bellinzani, originally published in Venice in 1720.
