Tchaikovksy: The Nutcracker - Act 1

Miloš Karadaglić (guitar)
Finchley Children's Music Group
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Alexander Vedernikov (conductor)

Followed by a selection of recordings from this week's Proms Artists.

Guitarist Miloš Karadaglić is the soloist in a new concerto written especially for him by Joby Talbot. Taking inspiration from Karadaglić's Montenegrin heritage, Talbot's typically rhythmic piece incorporates Balkan dances into its propulsive flow.

Dance also runs through both Glinka's heat-soaked Summer Night in Madrid, accompanied by pulsing castanets, and the expansive waltzes of Tchaikovsky's ballet The Nutcracker, whose complete Act 1 is here performed for the first time at the Proms.
