Tune of the Day: Prélude by Paul Merkus

for flute and piano

Today's piece was kindly contributed to our collection by its composer, Paul Merkus from the Netherlands. It is the first movement of a small suite for flute and piano, comprising this Prélude, a Sarabande and a Gigue. The short Prélude is intended to be an energetic opening to the suite, consisting of a joyous opening theme followed by some leggiero scales to be contrasted by a more rhythmic passage, which subsequently evolves into the reprise.
