Overture to the Nutcracker composed by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893). Arranged by Ellis Wean. Brass Quintet. For 2 trumpets, horn in F, trombone, tuba. Christmas Romantic Orchestra Transcription. Advanced. Full score & set of parts. Published by Cherry Classics (CY.CC2121).
Ellis Wean's transcription is a virtuoso work and should only be attempted by the "very bravest" of quintets....which means everyone :) This work is a real technical challenge for every part and can be the centerpiece of your Christmas Brass Quintet program....if you're willing to practice!
