Swan Theme from ‘Swan Lake’ (Brass Band) Tchaikovsky arr. Jack Lythaby

£36.99

Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake is made up of folk tales from Germany and Russia, and tells the story of Odette, a princess turned into a swan by an evil sorcerer’s curse. The ballet was premièred on 4th March 1877 by the Bolshoi Ballet company in the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, and despite its initial failure, has become one of the greatest ballets ever written.

The Swan Theme depicts the magic and mystery of the lake, with the oboe (solo horn in this version) playing the famous melody, which returns in various guises throughout the ballet. Tchaikovsky’s symphonic approach to ballet music was called “undanceable” by some critics after its première, but the score to Swan Lake has now become considered as the epitome of ballet music.
