AllMusic Review by

The Russian State Symphony Orchestra presents their version of the classic Nutcracker Suite on this album. Tchaikovsky's original music is fantastic, truly a wonderful composition that is given the proper respect by the orchestra. Although this may only appeal to fans of the ballet itself (or at least classical music fans), this is still a good rendition of a holiday tradition.
