Tune of the Day: My Sister Dear from Masaniello

by Daniel Auber, arranged for two flutes

This melody is taken from an English-language adaptation of French composer Daniel Auber's 1828 opera La muette de Portici, also known as Masaniello. The air was originally part of Le concert à la cour, a different 1824 opera also composed by Auber.

The present arrangement for two flutes appeared in Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in 1833.
