March from the Nutcracker for Piano Solo by Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky


About the Composer
Pyotr Il’yich Tchaikovsky (May 7, 1840-November 6, 1893) was a Russian composer of the Romantic era. While not part of thenationalistic music group known as “The Five”, Tchaikovsky wrote music which, in the opinion of Harold Schonberg, was distinctlyRussian: plangent, introspective, with modally-inflected melody and harmony.

The Nutcracker Ballet

The Nutcracker Op. 71, is a fairy tale-ballet in two acts, three scenes, by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, composed in 1891-92. Alexandre Dumas père’s adaptation of the story by E.T.A. Hoffmann was set to music by Tchaikovsky (written by Marius Petipa and commissioned by the director of the Imperial Theatres Ivan Vsevolozhsky in 1891). InWestern countries, this ballet has become perhaps the most popular ballet performed, primarily around Christmas time. The Nutcracker is based on the story The Nutcracker and the King of Mice.
