Tune of the Day: Study in B minor by Fürstenau
Today we propose the sixth study from 26 Übungen (26 Exercises) by German flutist and composer Anton Bernhard Fürstenau, first published in 1835.
Care is to be taken that the rhythm is steady and that the passing from one note to another is clear and accurate. The surest way of achieving this is by small and gentle movements of the fingers. In fortissimo passages, it is well to bear in mind Hans-Peter Schmitz's maxim “Forte playing — piano fingering”.
