The sheet music is below if you would like to play along.
Tchaikovsky would have been happy to see his work being changed, don’t you think?
This is a perfect example of repitition. The melody is repeated in the bass line, and vice versa. This is just a small part from Swan Lake, but it is one of my favorite parts.
