More from Stephen:

“Twenty-three years ago I released my version of the famous Suite from the Nutcracker, arranged for what I called a guitar orchestra. Two decades later, I was approached about treating the entire score in that same way for a proposed
new production of the ballet… At times, I wondered why… THIS WAS A LOT OF WORK! But after putting in countless hours of the proverbial blood, sweat and tears, I’m truly delighted with the results…. I used 18 different instruments, electric and acoustic for this Double CD. It’s a truly amazing musical composition and I’ve treated it with love and respect.”
