I think it's the Grande valse brillante, isn't it?

   It's the
Polonaise militaire, op n°40, in A major which be orchestrated by Claire Grunneman who open the ballet when the pianist enters on stage.
It's the same music in a different orchestration which opening Les Sylphides in traditionnal version with Prelude by Orchestra, before curtain raise up.
After it's
- berceuse op 57 in D flat major
- prélude op.28 n°18 in F minor
- prélude op 28 n°16 in B flat minor
- Waltz n°15 in E minor
- prélude op 28 n°7 in L major
- mazurka in G major
- prélude op 28 N°4 in E minor
and
- ballade op.47, n°3 en A flat major.
I don't remember the english notation. I hope it's that. I use this equivalent
DO - RE -MI - FA - SOL- LA - SI
C - D -E -F -G -A -B
bémol = flat
diese = ???

Yes, Do = C, etc., and Si = B. Si is H in German notation; they use B when we use B flat (or when you use si bémol) - have you ever looked at Rousseau's "Dictionaire de Musique"? Under the reference 'Solfier' he says of the German system "cette maniere de Solfier est si dure et si embrouillée, qu'il faut etre Allemand pour s'en servir, et devenir toutefois grand musicien".
(Sorry I can't find the grave or circumflex accents on my limited keyboard). I guess that Rousseau can't have had many German friends, or if he did he lost them!

>diese = ??? you ask...

diese = sharp

Best wishes

Richard
