Václav Trojan Fairytales for Accordion and Orchestra
Tchaikovsky The Nutcracker: Act II (complete)

Elena Schwarz conductor
Ksenija Sidorova accordion

Waltz of the Flowers, Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy… Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker is like a huge, mouth-watering box of musical goodies, all wrapped up in pure enchantment. Guest conductor, Elena Schwarz, indulges her sweet tooth tonight, and we all get to share – it’s the only possible way to follow Ligeti's folk-infused overture and a showcase for accordionist Ksenija Sidorova. If you heard her at one of our Christmas concerts, you won’t need telling twice: she’s phenomenal.
