Tune of the Day: Journey Through the Snow
from “The Nutcracker” by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Near the end of Act I of Tchaikovsky's famous ballet The Nutcracker, Clara and the Prince travel to a world where dancing Snowflakes greet them and fairies and queens dance, welcoming Clara and the Prince into their world. This sequence is frequently called either “Journey Through the Snow” or “A Pine Forest in Winter”.
Thanks to Carol for suggesting this piece!
