Tchaikovsky's Old French Song

Tchaikovsky was one of the most famous composers to ever live without being known.  We have heard of Bach, and Beethoven, however, Tchaikovsky wrote famous pieces such as the Nutcracker's Sugar Plum Fairy.  Enjoy this wonderful piece interpreted and played by me on Banjo.

Please remember that I am no trained classical musician. I play the melodies and then add my own flavor, style, and improv.  Improvising or making music up fresh, new, and on the spot is one of my favorite things to do. It was also a favorite of many of the great composers as it puts the player to the test to be flawless in the moment.
