Tune of the Day: Study in B minor by Boehm
from “24 Caprice-Etudes for Flute”
This octave jump-packed Allegro in B minor is the twenty-second 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 technical exercises.
