Tune of the Day: Study in E-flat major by Drouet
from “72 Studies for the Boehm Flute”
This syncopated study in A-flat major is the sixty-third piece from French flutist and composer Louis Drouet's 72 Studies on Taste and Style for the Boehm Flute, published in 1855. It is composed of a theme, 3 variations, and a coda; the third variation, in particular, is meant as an exercise in double tonguing (that's what the French expression double coup de langue means).
