Barry Cleveland: Tim Sparks' The Nutcracker Suite 20th Anniversary Reissue (w/Audio & Video)

| December 20, 2012

Okay, I'm not a huge fan of "Christmas music" generally, but when I do listen to it I particularly enjoy the classics, such as Tchaikovsky's The Nutcraker Suite—and especially fingerstyle virtuoso Tim Sparks' amazing solo guitar (more accurately, a "Chema" Requinto made by Enrique Enriquez) version recorded in 1992.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of that landmark recording, Sparks has reissued the disc on Tonewood Records.
 
Preview tracks here:
 
 
 
And here's a video of Sparks performing "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies" live.
 


Happy Holidays!
