Uhhh

I might not know what this is but I give it 5 stars cuz I'm weird!

One of 3 famous ballets...

This is one of 3 famous ballets Tchaikovsky wrote. The other 2 are "The Nutcracker" and "Swan Lake".

Anyways, the waltz and finale (tracks 6 and 41-42) are the ones to buy from this album if I had to pick favorites. There's always more to explore in music, and this is proof for those first getting into classical/ballet music.
