      In the mid 1960s, the late Roy Castle had a series of variety shows on BBC Television and Arthur Wilkinson (1924-1968) was his musical director. On one of the shows, the celebrity guest was ballet star Doreen Wells who asked if she could dance to music of the Beatles. It fell to Arthur Wilkinson to arrange Lennon/McCartney for use by a ballerina. He hit on the idea of using part of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite as a model; it was so popular that further movements were added for an EP recording and the complete Beatlecracker Suite is the result. All eight movements of the original Nutcracker Suite are here albeit with themes by Lennon and McCartney - just imagine the Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy to Can't buy me love . . . . .
      The movements are:
      1. Miniature Overture (Help!)
      2. March (When I'm 64)
      3. Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy (Can't buy me love)
      4. Arabian Dance (It's for you)
      5. Chinese Dance (Ticket to ride)
      6. Dance of the Reed Flutes (She loves you)
      7. Waltz of the Flowers (From me to you)
      8. Pas de Deux (All my loving)
      This Suite was prepared by Gavin Sutherland for a recent CD recording which is available on an ASV CD entitled "British by Arrangement" played by the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Gavin.
