5.0 out of 5 stars Elegant Solo Accoustic Guitar Arrangements March 3, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Tim Sparks gives fresh life to Tchaikovsky's classic Nutcracker, masterfully and elegantly. A local jazz channel aired this work from start to finish late one evening, to my pleasant surprise, and kept me glued to my seat. Each piece is just as creative and beautiful as the preceding one. As a composer/guitarist, and in contrast to another reviewer's rating, I'd give this work 5 stars--even if it included only a single arrangement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Superb! December 20, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I listened to this album by Tim Sparks doing the Nutscracker Suite and was just blown away. His playing style is wonderfully articulated and executed. Tim's interpretations of the pieces are beautiful, light and lyrical. I felt totally entertained. Not only does Tim Sparks facilitate a great technical prowness but its evident that he plays from the heart too. This is an album that I can enjoy and find myself listening to again and again. I eagerly look forward to his future releases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Guitar Playing September 22, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Great for those who can appreciate great guitar playing. Tim Sparks playing, his technique and his interpretation of the Nutcracker is sheer brilliance. To go from classical interpretation then to eastern european and beyond is just a small glimpse of this man's brilliance.

I would highly recommend this CD to any one who appreciates fine music.

Kudos to Tim! I don't usually like holday music but I do like the Nutcracker ballet. Tim has found a fantastic way to play this music on the guitar. He truly is a virtuoso. I highly recommend this CD to anyone who appreciates guitar music or just wants to have a holiday CD that is a bit off the beaten path.
