Valse from The Sleeping Beauty for Flute, Alto Flute and Piano
- Highly recommended
From the Publisher
The second of his three ballets, Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky finished the score for 'The Sleeping Beauty' in 1889 and it was premiered in St. Petersburg, Russia at the Imperial Mariinsky Theatre on January 15, 1890. If performed without cuts, the entire ballet is approximately four hours long, making it the longest of his ballets. One of the more memorable pieces of music from the whole ballet is this Valse from Act I. Frequently performed as a standalone piece, this arrangement for C Flute, Alto Flute, and Piano by Jeffrey Beyer has been adapted from the arrangement for Violin, Cello, and Piano, by Aleksandr Schaefer.
