Dance of the Tumblers, from The Snow Maiden – Tchaikovsky (violin viola duo)
Title: Dance of the Tumblers, from incidental music to The Snow Maiden
Composer: P. I. Tchaikovsky, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin; Viola
Printout: 4 pages
Note: This jovial piece from Tchaikovsky’s incidental music to Ostrovsky’s stage play The Snow Maiden is ideal for festive occasions. The violin part is challenging, but well worth the extra effort. Tchaikovsky’s music is not to be confused with Rimsky-Korsakov’s opera of the same name.
