PAQUITA variationssources, etc.

a correspondent who reads music and who saw the pp. from a russian-language book on the grand pas as recently published in russia noted that the harp variation danced by makhalina on 'classic kirov' (as the ballerina's variation) and likewise danced by jaffe in the ABT telecast of makarova's prod. is the very one given in the russian book as being by riccardo drigo and from his score for the 1892 version of LA SYLPHIDE choreographed by Petipa for v. nikitina.
meanwhile as i noted sometime earlier on this site there is, according to the lazzarinis a 'harp variation' composed especially for anna pavlova by drigo in 1904 was danced by her at her debut, one if mem. serves especially overseen by petipa himself.
i suppose it could be that drigo recycled his vari. from SYLPHIDE and didn't fess up or that the lazzarinis are mistaken or that two different harp variations are in question here.

i suppose you've checked the bonynge 'homage to pavlova' recording that includes an approx. 30 min. chunk of 'flora' to see if this appears in that segment of the recording?
