Tchaikovsky's enchanting Christmas fairy tale is his most popular work and, along with Swan Lake,
the world's most frequently performed ballet. The work is a masterpiece of orchestration (including the historic first use of the celesta, in Dance of the Sugar-Plum Fairy
) and is essential study for students of orchestral combinations and effects. Musicians will rejoice that previously difficult-to-find favorites like Waltz of the Snowflakes
and Spanish Dance
(Chocolate) are now available, along with the rest of this beloved score, in an affordable, single-volume edition.
Reprint of an authoritative early edition.
