Tune of the Day: Copenhagen Waltz

arranged for two flutes

According to Linscott (Folk Songs of Old New England, 1939), the “Copenhagen Waltz” is a “melody characteristic of the 18th century”, although it actually seems to date from the beginnings of the fad for waltzes in the early part of the 19th century. The melody appears in numerous fiddlers' manuscripts throughout the 19th century, and was even collected in tradition as late as the 1950s in Yorkshire.

The present arrangement for two flutes is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833.
