Tune of the Day: Study in G major by Ferling

from “48 Famous Studies for Oboe or Saxophone”

Today's study is the sixth piece from 48 Études pour hautbois ou saxophone, composed around 1835 by German oboist and clarinetist Franz Wilhelm Ferling.

The meaning of the tempo indication “Allegro scergo” is a bit of a mystery, as while the word “scergo” may look Italian, it most definitely isn't. Commentators have advanced multiple hypotheses as to what Ferling (or possibly the original editor) meant, but in our opinion the likeliest of all is that it was a misspelling of “scherzo”.
