Tune of the Day: Hungarian Dance No. 6

by Johannes Brahms, transcribed for solo flute

Today's tune is the sixth of Johannes Brahms's Hungarian Dances (Ungarische Tänze in German), a set of 21 lively dance tunes based on Hungarian themes. Even if originally written for piano four-hands, each dance has been arranged for a wide variety of instruments and ensembles. Our arrangement for solo flute is in the key of D major, like the version for orchestra by Brahms himself; the original version for piano four-hands, however, is in D-flat major.

Thanks to Karolina for suggesting this piece!
