Pyotr ilyich tchaikovsky tchaikovsky der nussknacker - casse- noisette op. 71


To celebrate Tchaikovsky's birthday, the doodlers and I decided to collaborate with the San Francisco Ballet! This is the first time we used real people to pose for a doodle and, thanks to a group of well organized and talented dancers/staff, everything went swimmingly! A single day of photography was all we needed before I took a compilation of individual/pair photos and pieced them together to make our final logo. You can take a peek at some behind the scenes work on YouTube .

And here is a video of the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy from Tchaikovsky’s ballet The Nutcracker . You can’t see the orchestra, but it will be underneath and in front of the stage. This tinkly instrument you can hear is called a celesta .

Tchaikovsky wrote a considerable quantity of songs and duets, including settings of Goethe’s Mignon songs as well as of less distinguished verse by his contemporaries. His choral works include the 1878 Liturgy of St John Chrysostom and a number of other settings, many of them for unaccompanied voices, of sacred and secular texts.
