You already know the story, and you definitely know the tunes! As Christmas approaches, join conductor Andrey Boreyko, the RSNO and RSNO Youth Chorus as they deliver a musical selection box from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker that is full of fantasy, fun and irresistible tunes. Plus, a powerful salute to Ukraine and a very different Tchaikowsky Violin Concerto – played by the ‘stunning’ (The Guardian) Ilya Gringolts.

Pre-concert talk: Conductor Andrey Boreyko chats to violinist Ilya Gringolts at 6.45pm in the Upper Circle Bar in Edinburgh and the Clyde Foyer in Glasgow. Free to ticket holders.
