The Three-Minute Nutcracker

The Three-Minute Nutcracker

Series: Music for String Orchestra Format: Softcover Score & Parts Composer: Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky Arranger: Lloyd Conley

Level: 3-4

A clever, lighthearted finish to your holiday program! With the never-ending goal to keep the concert short, here's the essence (nine themes) of the classic ballet, honed down to three minutes or less. Stage it with a big hourglass-type egg timer, or with a projected digital stopwatch and let the audience watch as your orchestra works toward the finish. For added drama, Lloyd has provided an optional accelerando (molto, if need be) in the “Trepak” finale, to bring it in under the wire. Dur: 3:00
