Finally, a fantastic arrangement of Tchaikovsky's masterwork that includes themes from the entire work, not just the ending! Gruselle follows the form of the original while keeping the work quite accessible for younger players. Themes include the opening hymn, pastoral interlude, Russian folk dance, and the famous jubilant victory melody set over an exultant Russian anthem. Epic!
