Tune of the Day: Andante by Paul Merkus

 for flute and piano

Today's piece, written in 1985, was kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, Paul Merkus from the Netherlands.

This Andante for flute and piano is one of my earliest pieces (as can be derived from the low opus number), and represents the first step in a discovery journey into the world of composition. It was written in the key of D minor, partly because D is a relatively easy note to play in tune (as a beginner on the flute).

After the exposition of the theme by the flute in the first eight bars, it is repeated by the piano. In the second part of this small piece, a somewhat more moving theme is offered, which is immediately transferred to the left hand of the piano. Finally, the last phrase contains a continuation of the opening theme, concluded with a Picardy cadence.

Tune of the Day: Martin Martin

 Pipe march by Roddy Campbell

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

This march is named after Martin Martin, a Gaelic-speaking native of Skye who in the late 17th century toured the Outer Isles (most notably the St Kilda archipelago) and wrote interestingly of his experiences.

Many thanks to Roddy for sharing his music with us! (And Happy 85th Birthday!)
