5.0 out of 5 stars Fun arrangements February 25, 2003
This is album is worth getting for the Beatlecracker Suite, particularly if you are familiar with Tchaikovsky's characteristic dances from his Nutcracker ballet. If you had not read the titles of the tracks, you might need to listen several times to figure out what Beatles tune is being given the Russian ballet treatment.
I first heard these tracks 35 years ago on one of those Extended Play records which played at 33 RPM, instead of the more usual 45. My friend thought that these renditions made The Beatles palatable! I, as a great Beatles fan was horrified!
Australians reading this might be interested to know that the first time I heard these tracks was the same day that it was announced that Australian Prime Minister Harold Holt had disappeared at Portsea.
The way that the Lennon-McCartney songs are combined with Tchaikovsky is clever and also hilarious. Worth buying to hear how it was done.
