Waltz of the Flowers ( Nutcracker Suite )
#1
Are there any definitive recordings of waltz of the flowers by solo accordion? I am trying to learn this waltz and am finding it quite difficult. I always like to have something to aim at but the examples on Youtube for example are not inspiring me. However, the melodies are quite exquisite and I am determined to master it.
It might also help if I had an accordionists version instead of the piano sheet music so if anyone knows where that can be found ( if there is one ) then that also would also be most useful.

This is on my list of songs to learn too....
I have a PDF of the sheet music (public domain) that I got off some Russian accordion site years ago. It's a really good and detailed transcription, but in that Russian style where they write out all the notes of the left hand chords, instead of one note and the chord symbol. It's still a really good chart though..

I'm trying to copy and paste it here....

maybe someone can tell me how to share a pdf file here, can't figure it out.

Actually, it's a piano transcription for the music used for the advert for Hellmann's mayonnaise!! Smile Smile

There is a very good but complicated arrangement by Charles Nunzio.
