Tune of the Day: Schlafe, mein Prinzchen, schlaf' ein

also known as Mozart's Wiegenlied, arranged for flute and piano

This tender Wiegenlied (German for “lullaby”) is one of the most famous of its kind. The German title translates as “Sleep, my little prince, fall asleep”.

For a long time, the composition was mistakenly attributed to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, as K. 350. Attribution for the melody, however, has recently shifted to either Bernhard Flies or Johann Friedrich Anton Fleischmann.
