The Nutcracker Fantasy
Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky/Arr. Yo Goto


This arrangement intends to make fantastic, beautiful and boisterous music from its namesake. (Mr. Tanaka, the Neagari JHS Band Director says "this piece is like turning over a toy box"). Accordingly, many scenes come one after another (or by bits and pieces sometimes) and various sound effects (pistols, clocks, whips, ratchets, etc.) are used a lot. Each section has a feature, like a soli, but the brass parts are not too strenuous. Some difficult passages have been simplified and are not strictly faithful to the original.
