Click on Classical: Nature and the ‘Nutcracker,’ a YouTube celeb, and an ‘Interstellar’ vinyl release


Every Monday morning at 9:15, I join John Birge on Classical MPR to talk about stories we’re featuring on our website this week. Here are the stories we’ll be discussing today.

It’s not the season for which Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker was written—but in Disney’s Fantasia, the Nutcracker Suite​ became a ballet encompassing all four seasons. I wrote about Disney’s remarkable animation as part of our yearlong 75th anniversary salute.

If you’ve ever searched for horn music on YouTube, you’ve probably spent some time listening to Steve Park. Gwen Hoberg talked with the Utah hornist who likes to get creative with his much-watched online videos.

Are you getting excited for Record Store Day? One of last year’s most-heralded film scores​ will be out on vinyl just in time for the April 18 record-fest.
