The Nutcracker, Op. 71

Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Sir Simon Rattle

“Some of the tunes are so famous that you even forget that someone had to write them: what could be more perfect than the pas de deux after the Waltz of the Flowers, which is just a G major scale? We fell in love with this music, rehearsing and performing it, and we think it is magic.” Simon Rattle

“There are certain things one can take for granted with a Berlin Phil recording. The silky sheen of the upper strings, the accuracy of the ensemble playing, the variety of tonal colours in the woodwind, the now mellow-now-blazing brass playing - and they're all here on this highly enjoyable performance.” Classic FM Magazine, January 2011 ***

“There is a consistent sense here that Rattle has the consistent scenario and its detail firmly in view, so that the children's fluctuating emotions of wonderment, vexation and disappointment are clearly etched in...this magnificent recording underlines its magical and musical magnetism.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2010

“Those of us who have always loved it can breathe again. It’s good to welcome Rattle to the Nutcracker fold, especially as he, too, seems to have fallen in love with Tchaikovsky’s astonishingly original score...the Berlin strings are simply gorgeous. Rattle keeps a tight rein on the dramatic action of Act I and revels in the popular character dances of Act II” Sunday Times, 19th December 2010 ****
