Tune of the Day: Swan Lake Waltz

by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, arranged for solo flute

This Waltz is taken from Act I of Tchaikovsky's famous ballet Swan Lake, and is one of the most wonderful musical numbers in the ballet. The piece is mainly in the key of A major, with a central passage in F major. It starts with a descending pizzicato scale in the strings, after which a typical waltz bass is set up. Then, at measure 19, the beautiful main theme makes its entrance.

Thanks to Béatrice for suggesting this piece!
