Tune of the Day: Flower March

from “Don Quixote”, transcribed for solo flute

This cheerful march is the leading music to the famous “Grand Pas de Deux” 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.
