Josep Pons directs the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in sumptuous music that’s perfect for festive occasions of all seasons, and enchants listeners whatever their age.
Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker suite is one of the composer’s best-loved works, with timeless pieces including the ‘Trepak’, ‘Waltz of the Flowers’ and ‘Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy’. Hearing the suite’s wealth of melody in its rightful place as part of Tchaikovsky’s complete ballet score places the famous movements in their true dramatic context, and also offers the chance to discover lesser-known gems.
