Tune of the Day: Dieu d'amour

from “Les mariages samnites”, arranged for two flutes

This piece was originally a chorus from André Grétry's 1776 opera Les mariages samnites (The Samnite Marriages), sung in Act I by a group of young girls. The theme is well known to pianists because of a set of variations composed by Mozart in 1781.

The present arrangement for two flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine (Philadelphia, 1833), in which it appears with the title “March des samnites” and is erroneously attributed to Mozart.
