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.

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT the complete ballet! November 23, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slide into the holiday spirit November 15, 2012
By Robert
Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Abbreviated Version of the Ballet December 6, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great recording February 8, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I wanted January 10, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Philharmonia Orchestra did a great job on this, it was wonderful. It was easy to "watch" the ballet in my mind through the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality classical music!! January 1, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
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!!!
