12 Days of Earworm-Worthy Christmas Music

I love The Nutcracker Suite, and in fact I’m a big fan of Tchaikovsky’s work in general. “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy” is one of those adorable tunes I can’t seem to get enough of.

I like Pentatonix okay.

  1. To me, this lacks the clarity that Tchaikovsky achieved with the use of the celeste – an instrument that his audience would not have heard before – truly innovative. What a vocal version really needs, therefore, is that clarity reproduced by a single treble voice (or at most two, because actually the celeste doubles the melodic line), with the rest of the voices following the orchestral parts – in other words a transcription rather than an adaptation. IMHO Pentatonix – a really clever outfit – miss the mark with this. It’s difficult when dealing with the music of a genius of composition.
