by Tchaikovsky, arranged for flute and piano
Tchaikovsky started composing his Romeo and Juliet in 1869. This orchestral work is styled an Overture-Fantasy (even though the overall design is a symphonic poem in sonata form), and is based on Shakespeare's play of the same name.
The Overture's yearning love theme signifies the couple's first meeting and the scene at Juliet's balcony, and is universally acknowledged as one of the greatest melodies ever written. When Tchaikovsky showed it to pianist and conductor Mily Balakirev, Balakirev wrote Tchaikovsky: “I very much want to hug you for it”. Over the last century, it has been used as the quintessential “love at first sight” music in numerous movies, TV series, and even video games (most notably, the kissing music in The Sims).
Thanks to Philip for suggesting this tune!

These two jigs constitute the fourth movement of the third of Jacques-Christophe Naudot's 6 Babioles pour 2 Vieles, Musettes, Flutes-a-bec, Flutes traversieres, Haubois, ou Violons, sans Basse. The French term babiole humbly indicates something of little value or importance, a trifle.

from Flute Sonata in D major
Totally unrelated to the more famous 15th-century polymath Leonardo da Vinci, Leonardo Vinci was an early 18th-century Italian composer, best known for his operas. His sonata in D major for flute, of which we present today the idyllic fourth movement, is one of the few of his instrumental works to be still played today.
