Synopsis

Amazon.com
Among the dozen or so complete recordings of the Nutcracker ballet, this early 1990s version by André Previn holds up better than most, with its sensible tempos and careful attention to clarity and detail. The justly loved "character dances" are performed with requisite charm but always with the feel of real dances, not just orchestra music. The sound could use a bit more spaciousness, especially noticeable at endings of sections, where the sound dies away too quickly. --David Vernier

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I've attended the Nutcracker Ballet annually for the last 22 years and this album is worthy of 5-stars in my opinion. The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra offers an astounding performance on this album!"
