Tune of the Day: Menuetto by Mozart
from “12 Horn Duos”, arranged for two flutes
This minuet is the sixth of Mozart's Twelve Duos for Horn, K. 487, which he composed in Vienna in 1786. They were probably intended for the basset horn, a wind instrument similar to the clarinet, but larger, in F (less often in G), and with a darker sound.
