This study in double tonguing is the eleventh piece from 30 Studi, Op. 32, by Italian flutist, composer and arranger Luigi Hugues.
This is the eleventh duet from Trente-six Petits Duos Mélodiques Faciles et Chantants pour deux Flûtes (36 Easy Flute Duets) by French Romantic composer Benoit Tranquille Berbiguier.
This Presto is the second movement of the first 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 air appears in Francis O'Neill's collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody, published in Chicago in 1922. The cited source is a Miss Lucy Ray.
This is the third piece from 24 Etüden zur Förderung der Technik (24 Studies for the Development of Technique), Op. 12, by German flutist Emil Prill. It was first published in Bremen in 1913.
This flute duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833. After the title, a mysterious “Mrs. G.” is referenced, possibly a singer with whom the tune was associated at the time. Several compositions were published in the early 19th-century under the title “Favorite Gallopade”, but unfortunately we were unable to track the origins of this particular piece. If you recognize the tune, please let us know!
Today we present a transcription for solo flute of the themes from “The Kalandar Prince”, the second movement of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's 1888 symphonic suite Scheherazade.
The first part of the Andantino, played by a bassoon in the original, provides some excellent low-register practice. If your flute doesn't have a B foot, you can simply skip straight to the oboe reprise at measure 26, which is largely the same but one octave higher.
Thanks to Janset for suggesting this piece!
