Tune of the Day: Ode to Joy

by Beethoven, arranged for flute choir

Beethoven's 9th symphony is regarded by many as one of the supreme achievements in the history of music. It was the first example of a major composer using voices in a symphony, as the final movement features four vocal soloists and a chorus singing lyrics adapted from Friedrich Schiller's poem “Ode to Joy”.

Many thanks go to Joyce Kai for contributing this arrangement for SSAB (2 concert flutes, alto flute, and bass flute) or SSSB quartet (3 concert flutes and bass a flute). The third flute part can be played by either a concert flute or an alto flute; separate parts are provided together with the score.
