Peter Tchaikovsky's beloved "Nutcracker" is visited again by arranger Kevin McChesney. In the mysterious "Arab Dance" a good job is done of simulating the orchestral effects of differing instruments. The mallet-on-suspended-bells technique appears frequently, adding a shimmering quality. Unlike the "hang-on-to-your clappers" speed of other Nutcracker selections, this one actually lets you relax and enjoy the music! Set in c minor, this work is 102 measures.
