This piano solo of Tchaikovsky's masterful Christmas ballet offers pianists a chance to enjoy favorites such as "The Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy" and "The Waltz of the Flowers." Created by distinguished composer Sergey Taneyev at the time of the ballet's premiere, this delightful arrangement renders the complete ballet in a style that is both idiomatic to the piano and entirely faithful to Tchaikovsky's brilliant score. Here are all the movements of the beloved Suite, along with the rest of this holiday favorite. Unabridged republication of the Sergey Taneyev arrangement.
