Product description

Tchaikovsky,P.I. ~ Nutcracker-Comp


Charles Mackerras is one of the most purely musical and versatile conductors around. In fact, he's never made a bad record, and this Nutcracker is outstanding. It also served as the soundtrack to a movie version of the ballet, and Mackerras's interpretation has a sense of cinematic spectacle that's very appropriate. He brings superb drama to the action sequences: the battle with the Mouse King, bustling Christmas scenes at the opening, and the "transformation" of the Christmas tree. In the second act (which is where most of the famous Suite comes from), each of the dances is sharply characterized. In short, a great performance. --David Hurwitz
