Arranged for Flute and Piano by Mary Jane Rupert
Flute Part and Piano Score, Complete PDF $17.95 (also available as individual pieces)
Mary Jane Rupert, pianist and harpist, has performed as soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral player in many groups in the Boston area throughout the past three decades. She has toured the United States, Thailand, and New Zealand as a member of the duo "2" with flutist Peter Bloom, and performed with such other groups as the Southcoast Chamber Players, Musica Sacra, the Cecilia Society, and the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra. Educated at Oberlin College and Indiana University, Dr. Rupert earned a B.M. in piano, M.M. degrees in both harp and piano, and a doctorate in piano performance. Having taught at Western Michigan University, Oberlin College, and Wellesley College, she now maintains a private studio for both piano and harp in Cambridge, MA.
Dr. Rupert's superb arrangement of The Nutcracker for flute and piano includes all of the pieces from the original Suite Op.71a from the ballet by Tchaikovsky, except the Overture. Professionals, students, and amateur musicians should all find uses for these popular pieces—as encores, recital pieces, and as part of the repertoire for more informal musical occasions. Read a review of the arrangement by John Ranck that was published in The Flute View.
