The beautiful Nutcracker Overture set the perfect tone for one of the most famous ballets of all time. This simplified arrangement is a full 5-page solo of the Overture and includes all major themes from the original, simplified for early to mid-intermediate pianists. Fingering is included to assist with challenging passages and intervals. This arrangement is great for smaller hands (largest harmonic interval is a Major 6th) and a lot of fun for pianists who love quick, exciting classical pieces. A great choice for a Christmas or holiday recital piano solo.
