This is an amazing recording! The instruments and flow are beautiful. I loved that it had a history of the Nutcracker inside. I learned alot. The recording quality is supurb. I've always liked the Nutcracker music during the ballet but wasn't sure I'd like it alone... I Love It! It has it's own magic! If you're looking for a musical experience, you found it!
