Spurwink River Publishing’s version of Tchaikowsky’s Ballet, The Nutcracker, continues to be the best arrangement available that utilizes an orchestra smaller than the original, with clear, easy-to-read parts and matching score.

the NutcrackerDr. Lawrence Golan, and his associate, Joanne S. Woodward, spent four years working on Tchaikowsky’s Ballet, The Nutcracker, to make the parts and score available to an orchestra more able to fit into today’s orchestra pits and ballet budgets. By carefully going through the parts and cleverly rearranging them, all facets are covered and nothing is left out, yet there are fewer wind, brass and percussion parts.

The matching score and parts are available for your Nutcracker season. Score and parts have been produced with the Finale music notation program. All parts are printed on 9½ by12 inch, 60-weight velum, and the score is in two books on 60-weight velum in an 11 by 14 inch format. Parts have been carefully set up for easy reading and page turning.
