P. I. Tchaikovsky THE NUTCRACKER
Suite op. 71a

Arrangement for organ by Alexander Daerr


With Alexander Därr’s transcription of the “Nutcracker Suite”, this famous and fascinating ballet music is now supposed to give organists the opportunity to present the organ from a different, rather unusual and surprising side and thus entertain the audience in a pleasant way..

Ouverture miniature (Little overture)
Marche (March)
Danse de la Fée-Dragée (Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy)
Danse russe Trepak (Russian dance)
Danse des Mirlitons (Dance of the reed flutes)
Valse des Fleurs (Waltz of the flowers)

“The … music is well composed and easy to play, you don’t have to be a virtuoso for it. … The organ should have two maunuals and a pedal (with a 4′ stop). A swell is not absolutely necessary. The organ version makes the player a lot of fun and will also delight the audience (for example at a New Year’s Eve concert). … Well thought-out registration suggestions and fingerings round off the edition.” Ars Organi, June 2020
