Tune of the Day: Poem by Fibich

Arranged for flute and piano

Czech composer Zdeněk Fibich originally composed this lovely melody for solo piano in 1894; it was included in the fourth book of a series of 376 piano sketches titled Moods, Impressions, and Reminiscences, Op. 41. The piece was subsequently adapted into the symphonic poem At Twilight, opus 39. Since then, this Poem has been heard in numerous arrangements, the two most popular being those for salon orchestra and for violin and piano.

Thanks to Phil for suggesting this piece!
