Tune of the Day: Laurette
from “Le petit chaperon rouge”, arranged for two flutes
This melody appears, as a ronde for voice and piano with first line “Depuis longtemps, gentille Anette”, near the end of Act I of the 1818 opera Le petit chaperon rouge (Little Red Riding Hood) by French composer François-Adrien Boieldieu.
The present arrangement for two flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
