Reviving the art of "swinging the classics", Steven Richman and the Harmonie Ensemble/New York present two different versions of the beloved Nutcracker Suite side by side on the same album for the first time: the Tchaikovsky original of 1892, followed by the 1960 jazz remake masterminded by the American dream team of Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn. Compare and contrast!

Steven Richman et l'Harmonie Ensemble/New York font revivre l'art de "swinguer les classiques" et réunissent sur un même album deux versions du célèbre Casse-noisette: la suite originale de Tchaïkovski (1892) et le remake jazz de 1960, concocté par le génial tandem américain Duke Ellington/Billy Strayhorn. Écoutez, comparez, savourez!

Steven Richman und das Harmonie Ensemble/New York lassen die Kunst des "swinging the classics" wiederaufleben und stellen zwei verschiedene Fassungen der beliebten Nussknacker-Suite vor, die erstmals zusammen auf einer CD eingespielt sind: Tschaikowskys Originalkomposition von 1892 und die Jazzfassung von 1960, das meisterhafte Arrangement des amerikanischen Dream-Teams Duke Ellington und Billy Strayhorn. Hören Sie beide und vergleichen Sie!
