A Little More Tchaikovsky

Tchaikovsky wrote a lot of music.  Here are a few more pieces that he wrote.

This video is the 1812 Overture.  It is very unique because he wrote in a part for CANNONS!

He also wrote the Swan Lake Ballet.  I found this video of the Chinese Acrobatic Ballet.  They combine dancing and acrobatics to create a very cool show!
