Tune of the Day: Study in E minor by Ferling

from “48 Famous Studies for Oboe or Saxophone”

Today's study is the eighth piece from 48 Études pour hautbois ou saxophone, composed around 1835 by German oboist and clarinetist Franz Wilhelm Ferling. Despite having been an accomplished composer, today Ferling is remembered almost exclusively for this collection, which is still commonly studied by oboists and saxophonists.

It is interesting to note that Ferling composed this work before the saxophone was even invented! It was in fact originally intended solely for the oboe, and only when it was republished in America in the early 20th century the publisher decided to market it towards saxophonists as well.

Thanks to William for suggesting this piece!
