This is the SCORE only version
Parts are available separately.
This complete arrangement is based on both the orchestral score and Tchaikovsky's own piano arrangement.
Some of the movements are abridged ( omitting some the the string passages) but still maintain the musicality of this music..
Ideal for those Christmas Gigs.
The movements are:
Overture Miniature: Complete
Dance of Sugar Plum Fairy
Trepak(Russian Dance): Complete
Chinese Dance: Abridged
Arabian Dance: Complete
Dance of the Reed Flutes : Abridged
Waltz of the Flowers:: Abridged
(The original version of the waltz of the flowers as written for orchestra is quite long, and if transcribed fully would be bit of an endurance test for the wind player. I have removed some of the reprises of the main theme, and also removed the opening harp arpeggio. All the original melodies are still there. I have in certain sections omitted the relentless "oom pah pah" of the waltz., which can sound quite heavy on wind instruments. I have attempted to give all the players places to breath, and have not transcribed it for "tutti" all the way through. (It is still quite a blow, but is now more manageable)
All the movements are available separately, or in different combinations.
You can also purchase the parts alone, or score and parts
Clarinet part is for Bb/A clarinet but alternative Bb part enclosed for those players withput an A clarinet
