This is a very good arrangement made for String Orchestras! It balances out within the parts, and allows each section's unique colors to be shown. I'm starting my own chamber group very soon, and I'm glad I can get my orchestra to play this lovely piece. I sincerely hope soon there may be the string orchestra arrangement for "Swan Lake" as well. Thank you!
Finally I got it!

Well, was so a long time I was waiting for this arrangement (announced by VSM long time ago). It is the only complete arrangement of the Nutcracker for string quartet on the market and perfectly conforms to the original for full orchestra.
I saw other arrangements around but they were incomplete and bad arranged.. this is really wonderful. Thank you!
