Viennese Christmas Spectacular by Candlelight

Wednesday 30 November, 2022

Tchaikovsky’s elegant Nutcracker Suite leads on from Brahms’
serious Hungarian Dance No.5, before Strauss II introduces us to the
boundless exuberance of the Polish March in his Trisch-Trasch Polka.
In the concert’s penultimate work Tchaikovsky transports the evening
to the magical halls of snowy Tsarist Russia with a regal waltz from
his ballet Sleeping Beauty. The evening reaches its climax with the
famous Blue Danube Waltz, not only proving the crowning jewel of a
fabulous night’s worth of music, but the coronation of Johann
Strauss II as the master of the Viennese waltz.Programme to
