  • Russian Dance: Trépak – Woodwind Quintet

    The Suite of movements extracted by Tchaikovsky from his ballet music for The Nutcracker was an immediate success. As prevalent as the complete ballet The Nutcracker is today, it is hard to imagine that it took years, and perhaps the staging of George Balanchine, for it to become popular.

    Some of the most memorable pieces from the suite are the Characteristic Dances. In Act II of the ballet, these movements are employed to introduce different residents of the “Land of Sweets.”  Tchaikovsky’s orchestration makes adept use of wind instrument color. This translates very effectively in arrangements for the woodwind quintet.

    The Russian Dance: Trépak ( Danse russe) is an energetic piece for all the instruments. It introduces Candy Canes in the Land of Sweets, building in excitement and speeding to the end.

    Composer: Mark Questad
    Instrumentation: Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, F Horn & Bassoon
    Duration/# of Pages: ca. 1:15 / 12 pages, 8.5″ x 11″
