Pianist Alexandra Dariescu presents a reimagining of the classic ballet tale of Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker, with Alex herself taking the role of Clara, now a little girl longing to fulfil her dream of becoming a pianist. Alexandra performs extracts from the ballet in transcriptions by luminaries including Mikhail Pletnev and Percy Grainger, interspersed with narration from TV presenter Lindsey Russell in a new version of the story by Jessica Duchen. The lavish release includes illustrations by Adam Smith, adapted from Yeast Culture's cutting-edge digital animation that accompanies the show's live performances. Romanian pianist Alexandra Dariescu, recently named as 'one of 30 pianists under 30 destined for a spectacular career' (International Piano Magazine), dazzles audiences worldwide with her effortless musicality and captivating stage presence.
