Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Trumpet: A6, Trombone: D5
Attack Of The Ghouls is a tour de force number from Harlem Nutcracker. The music is developed out of the growing Christmas Tree in the original Tchaikovsky score. However, in our Harlem fantasy, this is the battle between the forces of Death and Clara, who eventually is saved by the Nutcracker. Essentially a drum feature, the ensemble is run through its paces alternating with the drums—a true rollercoaster ride—not for the faint of heart. This will take a good band and require rehearsal, but in the end will dazzle any audience.
Big Band 5/4/3/3
5 Reeds, 4 Trumpets, 3 Trombones, Piano, Bass and Drums
