from “Exercices journaliers”
Today we propose the fifth piece from Exercices journaliers pour la flûte (or Tägliche Studien in German, i.e. “Daily Exercises”) by Austro-Hungarian composer Adolf Terschak. It was first published in 1867.
In the original edition, the author instructs to use double tonguing any time two consecutive sixteenth notes present themselves. Once you master the technique, you will be able to play this étude Presto.

from Violin partita in B minor
Johann Sebastian Bach composed the Partita No. 1 in B minor for solo violin, BWV 1002, in 1720. What we present today is a transcription for solo flute of the fifth movement (or third movement, depending on whether you count the doubles as separate movements) of this Partita, the sarabande. In order to fit the range of the flute, the piece has been transposed from B minor to E minor.

Today's tune comes from the Rice-Walsh manuscript, a collection of music from the repertoire of Jeremiah Breen, a blind fiddler from North Kerry, Ireland, notated by his student.

from “24 Technical Studies”
This study is the third piece from 24 Technische Studien für Flöte (24 Technical Studies), Op. 11, by German flutist Emil Prill. It was first published in Leipzig in 1911.
Watch out for accidentals! In the central section, the piece modulates all the way to the distant key of C-sharp major!

by Michel Pignolet de Montéclair, for two flutes
This is the opening movement of the second 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.

This gigue is the fifth and final movement of the second sonata from Sonates pour la flûte traversière avec la basse, Op. 19 by the prolific French Baroque composer Joseph Bodin de Boismortier. These sonatas were originally published in Paris in 1727.
