Tune of the Day: Study in D minor by Drouet
from “72 Studies for the Boehm Flute”
This “Allegro moderato” in D minor is the fifty-eighth piece from French flutist and composer Louis Drouet's 72 Studies on Taste and Style for the Boehm Flute, published in 1855. The runs of 32th notes are meant to be played staccato, as an exercise in double tonguing.
