Description

Dance of the Tumblers comes from Rimsky-Korsakov's opera The Snow Maiden written in 1881. The story of the Snow Maiden deals with the opposition of the eternal forces of nature and involves the interactions of mythological characters; Grandfather Frost, Spring Beauty and Wood Sprite with half mythological characters, Snow Maiden and human characters.

Dance of the Tumblers or Dance of the Clowns comes from act III of the opera, where the villagers are merry-making in preparation for the contest of wining the Snow Maidens heart to begin. It is skilfully arranged here for Tuba Quartet by Denis Burton
