Synopsis

Product Description
This CD was Stevan Pasero's first recording in his notable career and it features the first-ever transcriptions of Tchaikovsky's ageless ballet including March of the Wooden Soldiers, Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, Dance of the Reed Flutes, Waltz of the Flowers and more. To say it simply, when this ground breaking transcription by Stevan Pasero was originally released in 1985, it inspired guitarists worldwide to look at their guitar repertoire and concert performances in a different way. From 1983-1985, Mr. Pasero transcribed this timeless work from full symphony score to solo and duet guitar. He then toured and performed his Nutcracker transcription internationally with critical acclaim. It soon became a holiday standard for households around the globe and subsequently sold hundreds of thousands of albums, cassettes and, soon to be, compact discs. It will forever be remembered as one of the truly great transcriptions for classical guitar. ARTIST NOTES: Stevan Pasero is known worldwide as one of the most influential and versatile guitarists/composers of the past decade. Guitar aficionados love him, fans around the world are loyal to his music, critics praise his musicianship, while his recordings have sold millions. Mr. Pasero is featured on numerous recordings, has transcribed over 30 major symphonic works, produced more than 250 studio recordings and has composed well over 1000 pieces for solo and ensemble.

New life for an old chesnut
Bob from the Midwest | The Middle of No Where | 03/06/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Stevan Pasero seems to be one of the best kept secrets of the music world and thats our loss. He may be the best player of the acoustic guitar today.
This is a great Christmas CD, and a break from the usual we are forced to endure in the name of Christmas music."
Excellent Album
