Tune of the Day: The Emperor Nicholas' Waltz

arranged for two flutes

This flute duet appears in Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833. The piece was originally composed circa 1826 by German-born American pianist Christopher Meineke. The Emperor Nicholas of the title is almost certainly Nicholas I of Russia, who had just become emperor in 1825.
