The Nutcracker Suite
As his name implies, Pino di Pianopoli lives in music. You can find him behind the treble clef on every sheet of music, but nobody has ever seen him before. Pino has made the grand piano his home. He loves to jump around to the rythm and he won't miss an opportunity to come out and argue with his pianist friends Anthony and Joseph Paratore. He tells us the stories behind the music and how it came to be. Music by Debussy, Saint-Saens, Tchaikovsky, Ravel, Brahms, Dvorak, Barber, Copland, Milhaud, Mozart, Bizet, Fauré, and de Falla.
Children of all ages will get a kick out of Pino's wit and wisdom!
