Violin II from A Night at the Ballet - Tchaikovsky, P. - Waltz Of The Flowers from 'The Nutcracker' - arr. for String Quartet by Gerald Manning
Peter Illich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893) Waltz Of The Flowers from �The Nutcracker�.
Tchaikovsky, more than any other composer of his period and even to our own day, understood the danse d�ecole, its relation to spectacle and its subtle connection with the popular ballroom dances of his day. His three great ballets Lac des Cygnes, Casse Noisette and La Belle au Bois Dormant elevated what had been previously hack scores into a succession of musical masterpieces. In Lac des Cygnes he created a truly symphonic canvas with masterly orchestration. One of the orchestral works that everyone loves is the Casse Noisette (�Nutcracker�) Suite. A strange thing is that when Tchaikovsky had finished this charming Ballet Music he felt very much disappointed with it. Perhaps he was reassured when the first performance took place and the audience-encored every piece except one.
