Auckland Town Hall

Classical music

Tchaikovsky The Nutcracker: Suite No.1

When composing ballet music, Tchaikovsky was given very strict instructions by his choreographers. Many composers would struggle with such an artistic straitjacket. Tchaikovsky not only delivered exactly what was required, but responded with some of his best work. Hear the absorbing story of how he did it.

The ebullient music educator/conductor Richard Gill joins the orchestra again to ‘unwrap’ this great orchestral work and reveal what makes it so special.

Part concert, part interactive talk, each Unwrap the Music is guaranteed to take your musical appreciation to the next level. This entertaining event is great for all ages, whether you are a seasoned concertgoer or new to orchestral music.
