Tune of the Day: The Kalandar Prince from Scheherazade

by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov

Today we present a transcription for solo flute of the themes from “The Kalandar Prince”, the second movement of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's 1888 symphonic suite Scheherazade.

The first part of the Andantino, played by a bassoon in the original, provides some excellent low-register practice. If your flute doesn't have a B foot, you can simply skip straight to the oboe reprise at measure 26, which is largely the same but one octave higher.

Thanks to Janset for suggesting this piece!
