Traditional Scottish tune
This popular reel has long been a mainstay of Scottish tradition, and has been subsumed into the Irish. The earliest record of the tune is in Scottish musician David Young's manuscript of 1734, also known as the Drummond Castle manuscript.
To this day, the tune often accompanies a famous Highland Dance in which the dancers symbolically simulate the shape of deer's antlers with arms and fingers.

from “Nouvelle Méthode pour la flûte”
This simple, yet beautiful duet is taken from the Nouvelle Méthode théorique et pratique pour la flûte by French flutist and composer François Devienne, published in 1794.

This capriccio is one of 24 pieces attributed to the famous German flutist and composer Johann Joachim Quantz to have survived in a manuscript titled Fantasier og Preludier. 8. Capricier og andre Stykker til Øvelse for Flöÿten af Quanz (“Fantasies and Preludes. 8 Caprices and other Pieces for Exercise for the Flute by Quantz”). This manuscript has been kept in the Giedde Collection (named after its founder, Danish composer W.H.R.R. Giedde) in the Royal Library of Copenhagen, which hosts a fairly comprehensive collection of flute music from the second half of the 18th century.

Traditional American reel
The only known appearance of this reel in print is in Harding's All-Round Collection of Jigs, Reels and Country Dances, published in New York in 1905. The book calls it a “stop reel”, presumably because the B part has several halting syncopations in it. The tune may have served as the vehicle for a novelty or stage dance from around the turn of the 20th century.
We transposed the melody from G major to B-flat major to better fit the range of the flute.

from “20 Studi progressivi e dilettevoli”
This simple study in C major is the very first piece from 20 Studi progressivi e dilettevoli per il Flauto (“20 progressive and delightful studies for the flute”) by Italian flutist Camillo Romanino.

These two badines constitute the fifth movement of the first of six Concerts à deux Flutes Traversières sans Basse by the French Baroque composer Michel Pignolet de Montéclair. Here the French word concert is a synonym of “suite”, and has nothing to do with the Italian concerto. The overall structure of the piece is ABBCCBA.
