Description

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky composed the suite to his ballet "The Nutcracker" in January/February 1892, at the same time that he was still orchestrating the ballet music. The score of the suite was thus finished before the complete score of the ballet and before the work was given its definitive title. The world premiere of the suite took place in St. Petersburg on 7 March 1892 under the direction of the composer. The first editions of the score were published that same year by three publishing houses.

  2. March: Tempo di marcia viva | (3')
  3. Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy: Andante non troppo | (2')

  5. Arabian Dance: Allegretto | (2')
  6. Chinese Dance: Allegro moderato | (1')
