Octet in F Major – All movements – Haydn – This performance of the first movement is VERY fast. That is why the link for that movement is provided above. However, the second movement is very nice (this is the second excerpt….it is a theme and variation)
Petite Symphonie – Mvts 1-4 – Gounod – Audition Music for Flute….. The excerpts are taken from movements 2 and 3…the big flute solo starts about 6.20. Listen to it all…..It is a beautiful piece of music!
