A beautiful tune I first heard on Flook’s "Rubai" album, and I’d say it’s possibly one of the best tunes on that album.

They play it on a Bb and an alto flute, putting it in Cminor, and Brian plays all the low C’s an octave up, but with the two flutes, one can hardly tell.

Here’s more info about it from Flook’s site-
The Glass Polska

"This lovely composition comes from the imagination of Ale Moller from Sweden. He composed it for a Swedish play called ‘The Horse and the Crane’ which tells the story of a hard life in cold, northern Sweden in the old days and the arrival of new times and ideas with the building of the railroad. The Glass Polska is the ‘love theme’ between the man and the woman, represented by the two animals."

I also bought the original recording of it from iTunes, and it’s played plenty faster in F#minor/Amajor instead.

The love between a horse and a crane. Sounds painful. Not to mention impractical.
