Tune of the Day: Study in C major by Fürstenau
from “26 Exercises”
Today we propose the very first study from 26 Übungen (26 Exercises) by German flutist and composer Anton Bernhard Fürstenau, first published in 1835. It is important that the so-called “Scotch snap” (an accented short note followed by an unaccented long note) be rendered clear to the listener, which can partly be accomplished by means of a short break before each short note.
