Tune of the Day: Grand Pas de Deux
from “Don Quixote”, transcribed for solo flute
This “Grand Pas de Deux” is arguably the most well known number from Marius Petipa's 1869 ballet Don Quixote. The music for the ballet was written by Ludwig Minkus, an Austrian composer and violin virtuoso who served as the official Composer of Ballet Music to the St. Petersburg Imperial Theatres in Russia.
Thanks to Diana for suggesting this piece!
