Tune of the Day: March in Macbeth
arranged for two flutes
This flute duet is taken from Blake's Young Flutist's Magazine, published in Philadelphia in 1833. Unfortunately, we were unable to trace the melody's origins. It was probably composed for a stage production of Shakespeare's famous tragedy, but predates both Verdi's Macbeth and Arthur Sullivan's incidental music for Macbeth.
