From this semesters listing list my favorite piece that we learned about was definitely Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “Dance of the Reed Pipes” form The Nutcracker suite. This was my favorite for two main reasons: it is a piece from the famous ballet The Nutcracker and it has simple, interesting, and recognizable melody. I have always loved going to the ballet, especially when I was a little girl, and The Nutcracker is a classic ballet that I have seen multiple times before. This piece of music from the ballet is the song that I have always been able to recognize and connect with this certain ballet. The “Dance of the Reed Pipes” is organized in three-part (trinary) form. The main form or statement of this piece is the three flutes playing a staccato melody that is repeated multiple times.
