Tune of the Day: Study in C minor by Boehm

from “24 Caprice-Etudes for Flute”

This agitated Moderato in C minor is the eighth piece from a collection of 24 “Caprice-Études” for flute by Theobald Boehm, the German inventor who perfected the modern Western concert flute. These studies originally served as a proof of the playability of Boehm's improved instrument in all 24 keys, but they are also very useful (if somewhat demanding) technical exercises.
