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.

  • July 23, 2009 great piano solo

    I love this book and have been playing piano for 10 years now. This version is beautifully done, though since I've stopped lessons (I was majoring in classical piano but found I didn't enjoy it as much as working on my own) I've had a hard time...

    figuring out the timing on a few of the pieces. Lovely advanced piano music though. Would definately recommend!

  • October 09, 2008 Beautifully transposed

    I found it hard to find sheet music for the entire Nutcracker Ballet; most booklits only had some of the songs from the Nutcracker. I also wanted a version that was still as close to the original as possible without the music sounding too basic. (I've played simplified arrangements...

    before, and I just didn't care for them.) I was very happy when I found this book. Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker is beautifully transposed for the piano, amd it's fun to play.
