Program Notes

This esteemed Russian composer is universally recognized as both a master orchestrator and a master of ballet music. His music remains popular not only in the ballets themselves but also in the many dances and suites drawn from the scores. Tchaikovsky's signature on the march form is found in many march settings, including this from The Sleeping Beauty. As it opens the ballet, this resplendent march provides grand entrance music into the regal court of King Florestan.
