The Swan lake suite performed today consists of several numbers. The first section "Scene" (Pas d'action) is enchanting and mostly slow, featuring some delightful solo violin writing. The second number is the carefree but spirited waltz, played in the ballet."The "Dance of the Swans" comes next, a memorable piece whose bubbly manner and brilliant writing for winds combine to make this short piece one of the more memorable numbers here. The next number is the "Hungarian Dance" (Czardas), which becomes fast, rhythmic, and quite exotic in its latter half. In this version of the Swan Lake Suite, the "Spanish Dance," "Neapolitan Dance," and "Mazurka" follow the "Hungarian Dance." All this ethnic-flavored music is colorful and effective, but may actually be better suited to the ballet than to the suite.
