Tune of the Day: Garland Waltz
from Tchaikovsky's ballet “The Sleeping Beauty”
Act I. It is Princess Aurora's sixteenth birthday. Celebrations are already underway: the atmosphere is festive, made complete with a waltz danced by the villagers with garlands.
The wide range of this piece will put the quality of your tone in the three registers to the test. There is a factor, however, which will help you greatly: the melody of this waltz is just so lovely!
