Introduction/abstract

Tonkunstler Orchestra · Raphaela Gromes · Marina Viotti · Andrea Eckert · Hervé Niquet

DELIBES · TCHAIKOVSKY · CANTELOUBE

It's the most beautiful time of Christmas: in Tchaikovsky’s «Nutcracker» a breezy march accompanies the children, excited with anticipation, enter the parlour to where their presents await them; it is the start of a lively journey into the realm of fantasy. Fleet-footedness also characterises the first half of the Tonkunstler Orchestra's Christmas Concert with French conductor Hervé Niquet. Tchaikovsky's elegant Rococo Variations, performed by the young German cellist Raphaela Gromes, opens the programme. A musical gem from France follows with Marina Viotti performing a selection of songs from the Auvergne, which the folk music collector and composer Joseph Canteloube heard sung by the shepherds and farmers of his homeland.
