The music for Raymonda's variation in the Dream Scene after the Valse Fantastique is not from Raymonda. It's a slow waltz that gradually gets faster entitled "Valse.Adagio - Piu Mosso - Animato". Where does it come from? I'm under the impression that it comes from "The Seasons". If so, what specific section?

in the article noted below, there is the following sentence:

"The original third variation was eliminated before the first performance and Petipa substituted an arrangement of the Valse from Glazunov's SCENES DE BALLET, Op. 52 (1894), as a variation for Raymonda." --p.80
