Tune of the Day: Kosciusko's Garden
This flute duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833. We were unable to track the exact origins of this melody, but it was probably composed at most 50 years before this publication.
Kosciuszko's Garden is a small retreat garden built by the Polish-Lithuanian military engineer Tadeusz Kościuszko on the side of a cliff overlooking the Hudson River at West Point, New York. Constructed in 1778, it still offers visitors and cadets a place of quiet tranquility during the warmer months.
