Adapted for full orchestra by Merle Isaac, this second set of well-known music from the Tchaikovsky ballet is cheerful, jaunty, and lively with rhythm. Excellent music for holiday concerts. Featuring: March of the Nutcracker
In the full orchestra series, all material (except percussion) is covered in the string writing so the pieces can be performed in their entirety by a string orchestra, or by adding winds and percussion you can perform these works as a full orchestra.
