This duet collection features excerpts from The Nutcracker Suite, simplified for late-elementary to early-intermediate piano students. Both Primo and Secondo parts are equal in difficulty. The eight selections included in this collection are the same as those chosen by Tchaikovsky for the orchestral suite. These arrangements truly capture the excitement and harmonic textures of the original works. Also included is a one-page story synopsis for student reference.
