Tune of the Day: Scherzino by Andersen

for Flute and Piano

Danish flutist Joachim Andersen was both a virtuoso and a composer of flute music. The piece we present today is taken from his Opus 55, titled Acht Vortragsstücke or Eight Performer Pieces. It is a lively 3/4-time scherzo in D major, with a relaxed central section in G major marked “liberamente”, i.e. ‛freely’. thus contrasting with the “lesto” (‛quick’) found at the beginning.

Thanks to Brandon for suggesting this piece!
