Tune of the Day: Schubert's Wiegenlied

Transcribed for flute and piano

Franz Schubert composed his lullaby “Schlafe, schlafe, holder süßer Knabe” (“Sleep, sleep, gracious, sweet boy”), in November 1816. The song is also known as “Mille cherubini in coro” after an Italian language arrangement for voice and orchestra.

Tenor Luciano Pavarotti used to sing this piece in his Christmas concerts.
