World-renowned big band Echoes Of Ellington present a special programme focusing on Duke Ellington’s and Billy Strayhorn’s re-imaginings of Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite and Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite first performed by Duke’s great orchestra in 1960. Alongside this, bandleader and arranger Pete Long has written new Duke-flavoured arrangements on Holst’s The Planets. Listening to Echoes Of Ellington perform all three suites will be the closest one could come to experiencing the glory and excitement of the original Duke Ellington band.
