I just wanted to know whose is the music for this pdd. I know it is an interpolation, but do not know the name of the composer.

Also, who inserted this pdd for the first time in the ballet? Was it in the original choreography or was it inserted later?

Of the top of my head, isn't the music by Burgmuller?

Frederic Burgmuller = composer
yes, in place from the premiere, tho' added just before.
some background presented on pp.308-09 of my book, where the composer's name is mispelt, but which is given correctly above.
