Tune of the Day: Yorckscher Marsch

transcribed for solo flute

Named after Prussian general Ludwig Yorck von Wartenburg (1759–1830), this military march was composed by Ludwig van Beethoven in 1808 as “Marsch für die böhmische Landwehr” (“March for the Bohemian Militia”).

It is one of the most important German military marches, and is played quite often. In particular, it is the traditional march of the Wachbataillon, the German Bundeswehr's elite drill unit, and is played as the first march at the Grand Tattoo (Großer Zapfenstreich).

Thanks to Nathan for suggesting this piece!
