Tune of the Day: Study in G major by Drouet

from “Méthode pour la flûte”

This study in G major is the forty-fifth piece from the fourth part of the Méthode pour la flûte by French Romantic flutist and composer Louis Drouet, published in Paris in 1828.

The original version of this study was written for flutes that could reach the G below low C (G3 in scientific pitch notation), like the modern alto flute; it was, however, notated in concert pitch, while the alto flute is a transposing instrument. For simplicity, we decided to simply transpose the piece up an octave, so as to make it playable on the regular concert flute while preserving the original key.
