Waltz of the Flowers

The last of the variations, before the subsequent Pas de Deux, is the Waltz of the Flowers. I would suffice it to say this piece of music is quite possibly the most recognized and famous waltz composed by Tchaikovsky. He introduces the waltz with a solo featuring a single harp. It is a magnificent piece of music to listen to and a blessing to dance. Incidentally, the piece below inspired my Nutcracker series. It was the first piece written and the Nutcracker in the photograph was my very first… given to me by my mother.
