Traditional English tune, arranged for flute trio
“The Rose of Allendale” is an English song, with words by Charles Jefferys and music by Sidney Nelson, composed in the 1840s. Many people, however, mistakenly believe it to be a traditional Irish song, as it has been sung by many prominent Irish folk singers. Sometimes it is also believed to be a Scottish song.
The song lyrics are about a maiden from the town of Allendale, Northumberland; in love songs, a rose, regarded as a beautiful and romantic flower, is often the fairest maiden of a region or village.
The present arrangement for three flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.

by Johannes Brahms, transcribed for solo flute
Today's tune is the sixth of Johannes Brahms's Hungarian Dances (Ungarische Tänze in German), a set of 21 lively dance tunes based on Hungarian themes. Even if originally written for piano four-hands, each dance has been arranged for a wide variety of instruments and ensembles. Our arrangement for solo flute is in the key of D major, like the version for orchestra by Brahms himself; the original version for piano four-hands, however, is in D-flat major.
Thanks to Karolina for suggesting this piece!

Traditional Scottish tune
With this popular hornpipe air is associated a special Highland dance, commonly referred to as “Sean Truis”, but occasionally as “Willichan”. The tune first appears in print in Robert Bremner's A Collection of Scots Reels or Country Dances, published in 1757.

transcribed for solo flute
This spirited piece is the first of two scherzos for piano that Franz Schubert wrote in 1817. Here the composer adopts the usual ternary ABA form of such pieces, where the B section is known as the trio.
Not long ago, Doritos used this piece as the soundtrack for one of their commercials (played on the flute!), so, in case you're wondering, that's where you may have heard it.
Thanks to David for suggesting this tune!

Traditional American tune
This reel is taken from Harding's All Round Collection, published in 1905. A slightly different tune appears under the same title of “Butcher's Row” in the 1867 collection Howe's 1000 Jigs And Reels.
