Tune of the Day: Market Chorus from Masaniello

by Daniel Auber, arranged for two flutes

This tune is taken from Act III 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 a chorus titled “Au marché qui vient s'ouvrir” (“At the market that is opening up”), set in the large market square of Naples, Italy.

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