Tune of the Day: Caprice No. 14 in C major

 from “20 Caprices”

This is the fourteenth piece from a collection of 20 Capricci by Italian composer Saverio Mercadante. It is not certain when these caprices were composed, but scholars tend to associate them with Mercadante's early years in Naples, between 1811 and 1814.

Tune of the Day: The Races at Carrick

 Traditional Irish jig

The earliest known appearance of this jig is in Francis O'Neill's celebrated collection Music of Ireland, published in Chicago in 1903. Carrick is a name shared by over 30 townlands all over Ireland, so it seems difficult to establish which one the title might refer to.

Tune of the Day: Andante by Paul Merkus

 for flute and piano

Today's piece, written in 1985, was kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, Paul Merkus from the Netherlands.

This Andante for flute and piano is one of my earliest pieces (as can be derived from the low opus number), and represents the first step in a discovery journey into the world of composition. It was written in the key of D minor, partly because D is a relatively easy note to play in tune (as a beginner on the flute).

After the exposition of the theme by the flute in the first eight bars, it is repeated by the piano. In the second part of this small piece, a somewhat more moving theme is offered, which is immediately transferred to the left hand of the piano. Finally, the last phrase contains a continuation of the opening theme, concluded with a Picardy cadence.
