Music of the Week: March 26, 2021: Waltz of the Flowers (Tchaikovski)—Daniel Barenboim

To celebrate the arrival of spring in the Northern hemisphere, we chose the Waltz of the Flowers, which everybody knows as part of the extremely famous ballet The Nutkracker. Instead of thinking about Christmas, we invite you to listen for the energy of spring evoked by magical moods and powerful and majestic accents.

Inspired by flowers and nature the piece features harp solo, French horn quartet and a cello soli section.
