Tune of the Day: Study in G major by Andersen

from “24 Etudes for Flute”

This has to be one of the most beautiful études written for the flute. The only apparent problem is that it is completely made up of sixteenth-note triplets, and has no rests whatsoever. Some advanced flutists play it using circular breathing, but don't worry: if you'll take careful, musical breaths everything will sound just as fine.

Thanks to Austin for suggesting this piece!
