Tune of the Day: Miniature Overture
from “The Nutcracker Suite”, transcribed for solo flute
What we have to offer today is the very first movement of Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker Suite. In its original setting, this cheerful curtain raiser has a very unique sound to it, because it is scored for winds and high strings only, without cellos and double basses.
Thanks to Jeffrey for suggesting this piece!
