Christmas concert: Christmas with Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker”

Nine woodwinds along with a celesta and a double bass are all the Berliner Philharmoniker need to capture the essence of the most beautiful pieces from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker. Horn player Sarah Willis, who was the concert’s presenter, explained not only what happens in the ballet, but also demonstrated the special qualities of the various wind instruments in a symphony orchestra.
