Tune of the Day: Study in A-flat minor by Drouet
from “72 Studies for the Boehm Flute”
This “Andante sostenuto” is the forty-sixth piece from French flutist and composer Louis Drouet's 72 Studies on Taste and Style for the Boehm Flute, published in 1855.
It is proposed in two equivalent versions, one in A-flat minor (with all 7 flats in the key signature) and one in the enharmonic key of G-sharp minor. We suggest that you practice both, but separately. As always, start slowly, and make sure you play the right notes!
