It is testament to Tchaikovsky’s fame and popularity towards the end of his career (and his commercial sense) that the Nutcracker Suite was already well known in the concert hall before the full ballet had been produced in the theatre!

This version of Waltz Of The Flowers avoids the original key of D (possible but unnecessarily tough) in favour of D flat, which suits brass admirably.

There are treble-clef parts for all the lower instruments, and parts for optional percussion.
