Tune of the Day: Chorale by Paul Merkus

 for two flutes and harp

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

This is a short but gentle duet for two flutes, accompanied by harp. Alternatively, it can also be played as an unaccompanied duet or with guitar or piano accompaniment. It was originally written as a piano piece back in the year 2000, but has recently been arranged for this line-up.

Tune of the Day: Toreador Song

 from Georges Bizet's “Carmen”

This is one of the most famous arias from the opera Carmen. Sung by the matador Escamillo, it describes various situations in the ring, the cheering of the crowds and the fame that comes with victory.

If you haven't figured out what song this is yet, download the MP3 or the MIDI and listen to the final part, the one in F major. That is the part that almost everybody knows; if you want, you may well start playing from there.
