Tune of the Day: Rondo by Dvorak

transcribed for solo flute

Czech composer Antonín Dvořák wrote his Rondo in G major for cello and piano, Op. 94, in 1891, and first published it three years later. Legend has it that Dvořák spent an entire Christmas Day working on it! The piece, also cataloged as B.171, was dedicated to the renowned Czech cellist Hanuš Wihan. A version for orchestra was also produced by Dvořák in 1893, and published as B.181.

Thanks to Katie for suggesting this piece!
