Today's piece is the fifteenth study from 40 Nuovi Studi, Op. 75, by Italian flutist, composer and arranger Luigi Hugues.
This Scottish air, dating back to the 18th century, has been used as the melody for various sets of lyrics by Robert Burns, Lady Nairne, James Hogg, and Captain Charles Grayre.
In more recent years, the tune has made several appearances in popular culture. The title was used by the Rolling Stones in their 1966 documentary Charlie Is My Darling. A parody of the song can even be heard in the “Charlie X” episode of the classic series Star Trek, in which Uhura sings a special version (with lyrics adapted to the plot) as Spock accompanies her on the Vulcan lyre.
The present arrangement for two flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833.
This charming little Adagio in D minor is the third movement of the tenth 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.
This tune is popular in Irish tradition under the names “The Trip to Sligo” and, sometimes, “Lark in the Morning” (but it shall not be confused with another popular jig also called “Lark in the Morning”). However, it is believed to be a composition of Scottish fiddler John Anderson (1737–1808) who published it, as “When I Parted”, in his circa-1790 A Collection of New Highland Strathspey Reels For the Violin or German Flute.
This is the nineteenth piece from 24 Tägliche Studien (24 Daily Studies) by German flutist and composer Anton Bernhard Fürstenau, first published in Berlin in 1839.
This circular canon for two flutes is the final movement of a Flute Duet in E minor by famous German flutist and composer Johann Joachim Quantz, first published in 1759. In the past, this particular movement has sometimes been misattributed to Telemann.
This Vivace is the third movement of Italian Baroque composer Arcangelo Corelli's Violin Sonata No. 2 in B-flat major, which was originally published in 1700 as part of his 12 Violin Sonatas, Op. 5.
