After 4 performances in two days, I'm cracked, nuts, that is. Here's the best Monday morning clarinet talk I can offer.
Tchaikovsky Nutcracker, solos from clarinet part, David Itkin 1996 reduction, Columbus Symphony, Ohio, BalletMet Columbus production, Dec 2010.
Waltz of Flowers, Sugar Plum Fairy, tricky lick from ending coda, Overture, Arabian Dance (Le Cafe), transition from "bedtime" to midnight magic, (with water in A key) when mice take over. (girl screams), short clip of clarinet playing flute part in "Mirlitons" (David Itkin arrangement, 1996)
