Composer: Peter Ilych Tchaikovsky
Series: Bronze TradeWinds Concert Band Series
Arranger: Duncan Stubbs
The music of Tchaikovskys Swan Lake and Nutcracker Suite are popular pieces of seasonal music, especially at Christmas time, and here Wing Commander Duncan Stubbs, currently the Principal Director of Music for the Royal Air Force, has taken three movements of themes from these works and given them a light-hearted treatment. These attractive settings should appeal to many young/learner bands and prove to be a popular item on their concert programme.
