We're lightening things up this week with music you usually only hear around the holidays. In 2015, Semifinalist Samson Tsoy performed Tchaikovsky arr. Pletnev's Concert Suite from The Nutcracker Op. 71. We'll listen to three of the most famous character dances in this excerpt—Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, Russian Trepak, and Chinese Dance recorded live at the 2015 Honens International Piano Competition in Calgary, Canada. - Watch the video edition of this excerpt at honens.com/home.
