“A Christmas Showstopper”

Beth Penny Just Flutes staff member - [email protected]

Nutcracker Duets should be a spectacular crowd-pleaser at any Christmas concert or event. The virtuosity of the flute parts will ‘wow’ audiences, while also providing tunes that people know and love; the recipe for an extremely fun listening experience! There is plenty of excitement and challenge in store for the flautist, from the double tonguing in the overture, to the lyrical melodies of the Waltz of the Flowers, to the large intervals and fast runs of the Chinese Dance. Jennifer Seubel has arranged the Suite with great attention to detail: the precision of the performance directions and the way the flute parts complement each other really brings out the best of the instrumentation.

From the Publisher

Following the “Carnival of the Animals” and the “Moldau”, Jennifer Seubel has now set her sights on the “Nutcracker Suite” by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, and has arranged it for two flutes. This wonderful suite brimming with popular and much-loved melodies has been made available for two melody instruments in all its diversity and in its entirety.

As in the original work, enchanting melodies alternate with concise rhythms, whereby the reduced instrumentation succeeds in preserving the original flair of the work. The two flute parts are of equal importance, the melody and accompaniment constantly interchanging. These arrangements are for advanced flautists and offer many a small challenge.


About the editor:
Jennifer Seubel (*1985) is a writer, lecturer, adjudicator and flautist who also performs in the flute ensemble “Duo Noble”.
