The Ballet Orchestra Clarinetist, Volume 1

This volume contains excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s three ballets: “Swan Lake,” “Sleeping Beauty,” and “The Nutcracker.” Each excerpt is annotated and discussed as to how it should be played musically, and suggestions that may help players facilitate the technical aspects of the music and be aware of any performance concerns. Authors Plotkin, of Local 6 (San Fracisco, CA), and Hartman, of Local 802 (New York City), both have performed ballets extensively in the US and around the world.
