Waltz of the Flowers
Elizabeth Volpé Bligh has edited the harp part to “Waltz of the Flowers” from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker ballet. “Tchaikovsky’s original part was deemed unworkable by Zabel, the Bolshoi Ballet harpist who premiered it,” explains Volpé Bligh. “Tchaikovsky agreed that it needed to be amended, but since the original part was never re-printed, it is common practice now for every harpist to modify the original.” This part includes the cadenza as well as the rest of the scene.
