Tune of the Day: Study in C major by Popper

from “High School of Cello Playing”, transcribed for solo flute

This étude was kindly contributed to our collection by Lily. It is based on Bohemian cellist and composer David Popper's Hohe Schule des Violoncello-Spiels (High School of Cello Playing), Op. 73, published in 1901.

The central part of the study, notated in octave clef, provides a fun challenge in the high register; it can also be played, however, in normal treble clef. The low C's in measures 60–63 can also be played one octave above, if desired.
