Symphony No.1 (2nd Mov.) - Land of Desolation, Land of Mists

Composed by Tchaikovsky

Arranged by Julian M Blakestone


"Land of Desolation, Land of Mists" is the title given to the second movement of Tchaikovsky's First Symphony with carries the sub-title Winter Dreams, a theme carried onward by its first two movements. However, those seeking the "misty desolation" of a winter on the steppes will not find it here, for of all Tchaikovsky's symphonies, this one bears the aura of optimism.
