A small English festival programmed Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker, arranged for piano 4 hands by Arensky in 1892 and published by Jurgenson.
Then they discovered that the score is rare as hen’s teeth.
They eventually located a copy in a major Russian institution, which agreed to scan and send over the score. But the price is prohibitive … £1,641.
Do any of our readers have a spare copy on the shelf?
