Viennese Christmas Spectacular

About Viennese Christmas Spectacular

Always a winning concert, with a combination of pieces that our audience loves, this concert celebrates the magic of Christmas and brings people together for a sensational evening of wonderful music.

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:

Strauss - Die Fledermaus Overture

Strauss - Trisch-Trasch Polka

Tchaikovsky - Sleeping Beauty Waltz

Brahms - Hungarian Dance No. 5

Tchaikovsky - Nutcracker Suite

Strauss - Blue Danube
