Tune of the Day: Barcarolle from Masaniello

by Daniel Auber, arranged for two flutes

This celebrated barcarolle is part of Act II of French composer Daniel Auber's 1828 opera La muette de Portici, which is also known as Masaniello. In its original form, the piece is an aria titled “Amis, la matinée est belle” (“Friends, the morning is beautiful”), sung by Masaniello himself.

The present arrangement for two flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
