František Pok has chosen to arrange six excerpts from the ballet: the sparkling Overture, the Danse des Mirlitons, the Trepak which is a traditional Ukrainian dance, the Danse Arabe, smoothly dark in texture with an hypnotic rhythm and melody, and the Danse Chinois, comical in its bass figurations and notable for avoiding the cliché of pentatonic melody. The finale is the Valse des Fleurs, one of Tchaikovsky’s finest waltzes.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
