Tune of the Day: Scherzo in B-flat major by Schubert

transcribed for solo flute

This spirited piece is the first of two scherzos for piano that Franz Schubert wrote in 1817. Here the composer adopts the usual ternary ABA form of such pieces, where the B section is known as the trio.

Not long ago, Doritos used this piece as the soundtrack for one of their commercials (played on the flute!), so, in case you're wondering, that's where you may have heard it.

Thanks to David for suggesting this tune!
