Tune of the Day: Study in B major by Drouet
from “72 Studies for the Boehm Flute”
This “Arietta pastorale” (“little pastoral aria”) in B major is the fifty-ninth piece from French flutist and composer Louis Drouet's 72 Studies on Taste and Style for the Boehm Flute, published in 1855. It is to be played “dolcissimo sempre”, that is, always very sweetly and softly.
