The final movement of the Nutcracker Suite arranged for wind quintet.

The original orchestral piece and is quite long, and if transcribed fully would be bit of an endurance test for the wind player.

So I have made the decision to arrange this piece as an abridged version, which still maintains the feel of piece. 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 transcribed "tutti" all the way through.

You can also purchase the score with parts, the score without parts or just the parts for the complete suite, which comprises the following pieces.

Overture Miniature: Complete

March: Abridged

Dance of Sugar Plum Fairy

Trepak(Russian Dance): Complete

Chinese Dance: Abridged

Dance of the Reed Flutes : Abridged

Waltz of the Flowers:: Abridged

You can also buy the individual pieces separately.
