Tune of the Day: John Sobieski's Quick Step

Traditional tune, arranged for two flutes

This flute duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833.

The title probably refers to Jan III Sobieski, who was king of Poland from 1674 until his death in 1696. Sobieski was an able military commander, most famous for his victory over the Turks at the 1683 Battle of Vienna. Very popular among his subjects, he briefly restored the kingdom of Poland-Lithuania to greatness for the last time.
