Tune of the Day: Study in D major by Terschak
from “Exercices journaliers”
Today we propose the fifth piece from Exercices journaliers pour la flûte (or Tägliche Studien in German, i.e. “Daily Exercises”) by Austro-Hungarian composer Adolf Terschak. It was first published in 1867.
In the original edition, the author instructs to use double tonguing any time two consecutive sixteenth notes present themselves. Once you master the technique, you will be able to play this étude Presto.
