This one is by request…

From the 14LP box set… Edition Wilhelm Furtwängler – RIAS recordings with the Berlin Philharmonic.

For this LP edition, we have taken the decision not to alter the great dynamic range of the original analogue tapes. This means that Furtwangler’s interpretations are made accessible to the listener with their original dynamics. However, alongside the ff passages, with no dynamic alteration, there are also very soft ppp passages during which background noise is audible. – from the back of the box

There are countless performances of The Nutcracker out there. This one has always been my favorite. Excellent performance, superb sound quality. What more can you ask for? If you’ve been looking for a copy of The Nutcracker, this is the one you want.

Although the original production was not a success, the twenty-minute suite that Tchaikovsky extracted from the ballet was. However, the complete Nutcracker has enjoyed enormous popularity since the late 1960s and is now performed by countless ballet companies, primarily during the Christmas season, especially in the US.
