Editorial Reviews

This rendition of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker is a wintry take on the classic piece. The music is still as vital as ever, making this a dramatic and exciting recording, yet it still remains comfortably familiar. Start a new tradition this year and make this the version you play all season long.

I bought this a few years back for my young daughter. What is there is fine, but the problem is that based on the description when I made the purchase I thought this was the complete Nutcracker. Not so. It's just selections, and not even all of the best ones. Very frustrating. I'll be buying a different version this year. I figured I should come back and write a review since the description still does not clearly state that this is an abbreviated version. So: OK if you just want the "highlights" but don't get it if you want the complete ballet.

I have this on CD (several years old and several scratches now). I also bought this one year for my grandfather who loved classical music. I just recently purchased this for download to my devices.

Well worth the cost!! Crisp, clear sound and beautiful music from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Great to listen to with ear buds for a total immersion sound, or great to listen to while cleaning, working, studying, or even while falling asleep. I love music, especially uplifting, moving instrumental classical music. Any excuse to listen to this particular download/CD will be a wise use of your ears!!!

Beautiful music! However, the sound quality of the music isn't very good. Playing it on my computer requires that the volume be turned up all the way. Then there are times where the music booms out and I find myself continuously adjusting the volume. This is frustrating and takes away the enjoyment of the music. Also, some of the segments of music in this version of the nutcracker ballet are abbreviated versions of the original ballet.

Great transitional music from taking down the Halloween decorations to putting up the colorful fall and turkey decor, minus all the heavy handed Christmas music that follows. This is without a doubt Tchaikovsky' greatest ballet score despite his own personal reservations about it. This particular CD does a fine job, and cuts to the chase.

I wanted to expose my granddaughter to the Nutcracker Suite, especially since she is taking ballet classes. This recording is exactly what I wanted to replace my old vinyl 33 1/3 album.

I have been looking for Nutcracker music for a long time. Finally I found it here. My daughter loves it. And I bought this item hassle-free.

He wears a homemade "crown" as he listens to the music and looks at the illustrations in the children's "Story of the Nutcracker Ballet" paperback (also sold by Amazon). I'm sure that his previous exposure to a live performance of this ballent heightened his interest in this product. Tchaikofsky lives!

I purchased this cd for my wife as a gift just before Christmas. I didn't expect it to arrive before Christmas and it didn't, but when it finally did come, the cd case was cracked and it did not match the cd description. The cd that arrived was only SELECTIONS from the Nutcracker, not the whole thing.
To make matters worse, I have contacted the seller regarding their return policy, but they refuse to respond. I am very dissatisfied.
