Tune of the Day: La biondina in gondoletta

Traditional Italian song, arranged for two flutes

“La biondina in gondoleta” (“The blonde in a gondola”) is a traditional Italian song from the city of Venice. Its melody is often attributed to the German composer Simon Mayr (1763–1845), but this attribution may very well be spurious, possibly an attempt to ennoble the origins of the popular piece.

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