This Fine Arts Network/Ballet Studio production of The Nutcracker offers all of the elements that viewers have come to love and expect of the show -- from the elegant costumes to the stirring Tchaikovsky score and the dazzling dancing -- with the addition of a unique approach to the telling of the occasionally bewildering story. By expanding on the relationship between young Clara and Drosselmeyer's apprentice (the man who becomes the Nutcracker Prince and defeats the Rat King in Clara's nightmare), this version of The Nutcracker boasts a lovely romance and a more complete story. Some of the ballet's dances have even been rearranged and are presented here in a compelling order that adds to the storytelling nature of the narrative in this award-winning production. Learn More
• Beethoven - Quintet for Piano and Winds (Opus16)
• Beethoven - Octet in Eb (Opus 103)</p> <p>The first piece, the Quintet for Piano and Winds is reminiscent of Mozart, but has Beethoven’s fingerprints all over it. It ends so enthusiastically that it is difficult for the listener to remain seated.
And, the Octet in Eb for two horns, two clarinets, two oboes and two bassoons, weaves one lilting melody into another and ends with a presto movement that one car hardly resist dancing to. Beethoven will never seem the same after this concert, performed by the California Chamber Orchestra.</p>
