The festive candlelight ambience sets the scene for Tchaikovsky’s elegant Nutcracker Suite, Brahms’ serious Hungarian Dance No.5 and 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.
