Tune of the Day: Preludio by Corelli

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

Today we propose the opening movement of Italian Baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli's Trio Sonata No. 11 in E-flat major. You may notice that the key signature has only 2 flats instead of 3, despite the piece being in E-flat major. This kind of discrepancy was relatively common during the Baroque period.

This piece was originally composed for two violins and continuo. A couple of notes have been altered to make it playable on the flute, namely three Bb3 which have been raised: the 2nd note of measure 3 and the 7th note of measure 12 in the first violin, and the 2nd note of measure 4 in the second violin.

Thanks to Mario for contributing this piece!

Tune of the Day: Capriccio in D major by Ruge

 for solo flute

This is the fifteenth piece from a collection of 17 Capricci for Flauto Traverso by Italian flutist and composer Filippo Ruge. Born in Rome around 1725, Ruge appears to have spent most of his professional life in France, and especially in Paris, where several of his compositions were published, ranging from small-scale chamber music to large-scale symphonic works.

Tune of the Day: Laurette

 from “Le petit chaperon rouge”, arranged for two flutes

This melody appears, as a ronde for voice and piano with first line “Depuis longtemps, gentille Anette”, near the end of Act I of the 1818 opera Le petit chaperon rouge (Little Red Riding Hood) by French composer François-Adrien Boieldieu.

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

Tune of the Day: The Happy Clown

 Traditional English tune

This air was first published in London by John Young in the Second Volume of the Dancing Master (1718). However, William Stenhouse, in commentary on The Scots Musical Museum, claims to have had a manuscript version from 1709. John Gay employed the melody in The Beggar's Opera (1729) for a song by Lucy beginning “I'm like a skiff on the ocean toss'd”. Subsequently, it was included in a number of ballad operas of the period.

Thanks to Phil for suggesting this tune!
