Today's piece is the fourth study from Danish flutist and composer Niels Peter Jensen's 12 Etudes for Flute, Op. 25, first published around 1829.
This ballad was written by Irish composer and conductor Joseph Augustine Wade in 1831. Wade was quite popular in his lifetime, and is especially remembered for his famous song “Meet me by Moonlight”.
The present arrangement for two flutes appeared in Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
This is the opening movement of Georg Philipp Telemann's Partita No. 5 in E minor, TWV 41:e1, originally published in 1716 as part of the Kleine Kammermusik (“little chamber music”) collection. The original edition indicates that the melody is intended to be played by an oboe, a violin, or a flute.
This Irish slip jig is taken from O'Farrell's Pocket Companion for the Irish or Union Pipes, first published around 1804. It is based on the English tune known as “Yellow Stockings”, which dates back to the 17th century.
This study, mixing binary and ternary rhythms, is the thirteenth piece from a collection of 26 Little Caprices for flute (XXVI kleine Capricen für die Flöte) by Danish flutist and composer Joachim Andersen, published in 1890.
This Adagio is the opening movement of a Sonata in B minor for two flutes or recorders by a German composer named Johann Christoph Schultze. This is not to be confused with the apparently unrelated composer of the same name who was born in 1733, as this sonata was first published in Hamburg in 1729.
This is the opening movement of a sonata in A minor for flute and keyboard that is thought to have been composed by George Frideric Handel. First published in 1730, the sonata is referred to as Halle Sonata No. 1 (“Hallenser Sonate Nr. 1” in German). It was supposed to be an early work composed by Handel before 1703 in his hometown Halle, but its authenticity is now considered doubtful.
