Tune of the Day: The Union Waltz

for three flutes

This flute trio is taken from James Bond's National Melodies, published in London in 1815. It is a combination of three waltzes, called “Lieber Augustine”, “Hungarian Waltz”, and “Tyrolese Waltz”.

The most prominent of the three melodies, better known as “O du lieber Augustin” (“O dear Augustin”), is a popular Viennese song, supposedly composed by balladeer Marx Augustin in 1679.
