Tune of the Day: Andante by Telemann

Tune of the Day: Pledge by Paul Merkus

 for flute and piano

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

The “Pledge” was originally written for alto saxophone and piano in 2014, but has been transcribed for flute and piano by octavating the flute part. The original intent was to exploit the sultry character of the low register of the alto saxophone, while contrasting it with passages in a higher position.

Hence, the piece begins with a questioning in the low register. After a first phrase, the questioning becomes a bit more impatient, with staccato notes and an exclamation. Then the main theme gradually unfolds with rhythmic evolution, followed by an interlude and a second theme, first rising, then falling. This pattern repeats before leading into an epilogue, in which the questioning return one final time.

Today's tune was kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, piper Roddy Campbell from the isle of Barra in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland.

This was a short and pleasant family holiday in the summer of 2009 in Borve, that once-Viking township on the west side of Barra.

Tune of the Day: Study in G major by Ferling

 from “48 Famous Studies for Oboe or Saxophone”

Today's study is the sixth piece from 48 Études pour hautbois ou saxophone, composed around 1835 by German oboist and clarinetist Franz Wilhelm Ferling.

The meaning of the tempo indication “Allegro scergo” is a bit of a mystery, as while the word “scergo” may look Italian, it most definitely isn't. Commentators have advanced multiple hypotheses as to what Ferling (or possibly the original editor) meant, but in our opinion the likeliest of all is that it was a misspelling of “scherzo”.

Tune of the Day: Danny Boy

 arranged for two flutes

Today we propose an arrangement for two flutes of the famous Londonderry Air, a.k.a. “Danny Boy”.

Oh, Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side.
The summer's gone, and all the roses falling,
It's you, it's you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when summer's in the meadow,
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow,
It's I'll be there in sunshine or in shadow,—
Oh, Danny boy, Oh Danny boy, I love you so!

Thanks to Rachel for contributing this arrangement!

Tune of the Day: The Cat in the Corner

 Traditional Irish jig

The earliest known appearance of “The Cat in the Corner” is in Ryan's Mammoth Collection, published in Boston in 1883. However, the tune was likely derived from an earlier jig by Scottish fiddler Niel Gow (1727–1807) titled “Lady Charlotte Murray”.
