Tchaikovsky – Dubovik – Reminiscences of the Waltz of the Flowers


During Christmas and New Year times the loudspeakers at every public place in Russia are playing the Tchaikovsky music “Waltz of the Flowers” from the Nutcracker ballet. For me this music is always connected with the smell of roasted chestnuts and Glühwein flavours and it reminds me of a peaceful and joyful time.


The main idea of the Christmas time to celebrate it together with the family and bringing joy to each other through our gift will always be the same, only the way how we celebrate it is changing–for example, we have less lametta than in former times.


The composition of Michael Dubovik follows the creativity code  “Meaningful Emotions”. He puts a famous melody in the centre but surrounds it with modern harmonic sounds of string orchestra.
