Following her other arrangements of the “Carnival of the Animals” and the “Moldau” for two flutes, Jennifer Seubel has now set her sights on the “Nutcracker Suite” by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, and has arranged it for two flutes. This wonderful suite brimming with popular and much-loved melodies has been made available for two melody instruments in all its diversity and in its entirety.
As in the original work, enchanting melodies alternate with concise rhythms, whereby the reduced instrumentation succeeds in preserving the original flair of the work. The two flute parts are of equal importance, the melody and accompaniment constantly interchanging. These arrangements are for advanced flautists and offer many a small challenge.
