Tune of the Day: Tarantella from The Nutcracker

by P.I. Tchaikovsky, transcribed for solo flute

This Tarantella, a type of fast traditional dance from Southern Italy, appears in Act II of Tchaikovsky's famous ballet The Nutcracker, right before the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.

Thanks to Sarah for suggesting this tune!
