Synopsis

Completed in 1892, Tchaikovsky's entertaining masterpiece is one of the most popular pieces ever created for ballet. A perennial favorite in theaters and concert halls — especially at Christmastime — The Nutcracker vividly displays the composer's virtuosity in creating varied orchestral colors.
Exhibiting immense "charm and novelty of instrumentation" (Grove's Dictionary), the work has delighted generations of listeners with such familiar favorites as the "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy," "Trepak" (Russian Dance), "Arabian Dance," "Chinese Dance," and "Waltz of the Flowers."
Now available to students, teachers, and musicians at a price considerably less than any comparable full score would cost, this high-quality reproduction of an authoritative edition will be welcomed by music lovers everywhere.
