Grieg, Music from Peer Gynt
Tchaikovsky, Act I Finale from The Nutcracker
Grieg, Piano Concerto, Op. 16
“I fell in love with The Nutcracker as a child and almost came to the US at age 8 to pursue a career as a ballerina. One of Tchaikovsky’s most breathtaking musical moments that symphonic audiences rarely get to hear is in the Act I Finale – that purely magical moment when the clock strikes twelve, and the toys come alive. Grieg’s romantic Piano Concerto features one of the most famous openings in classical music. His music from Peer Gynt, including the famous ‘Morning Mood’ and ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King,’ captures various adventures from the Norwegian mountains to the North African desert.” – Carolyn Kuan
