Sugar Plum on the Run


SUGAR PLUM ON THE RUN, an album from composer LIOR ROSNER, featuring an original story about the Sugar Plum Fairy from holiday favorite The Nutcracker. JEREMY IRONS narrates the story, written by James Lorick and Rosner, with the ROYAL PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA and conductor SCOTT DUNN performing Rosner’s music.

The album also features the iconic Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, possibly the most popular moment from this magical ballet.  To accompany the original, Rosner has written a set of variations on Tchaikovsky’s famous Dance of which he says “I composed a set of eight variations that paid homage to the tradition of Russian music, imagining what would have happened if all my favorite Russian composers were each commissioned to write a variation on Tchaikovsky’s theme.”
