Tune of the Day: Les Folies d'Espagne
by Marin Marais, transcribed for solo flute
This set of 25 variations is an anonymous 18th-century arrangement for solo flute of “Les Folies d'Espagne”, originally published in 1701 by the famous French viol player Marin Marais. The piece is based on “La Folía”, one of the oldest remembered European musical themes.
