Notes & Reviews:

"...no other version of the Nutcracker that I have heard registers quite so suggestively the extent to which the world of childhood fairy-tales is simply 'weird' - apparently rooted in everyday reality, but following a logic all its own, of an airily disorientating and even unsettling nature. Mackerras catches these dream-like, other-worldly elements of Tchaikovsky's music in a uniquely captivating way...there is no better set available..." -Classic CD
