Satisfactory

This is a dual disc; it has a standard ‘red book’ audio CD on one side
and a DVD-Audio on the other. This also has a DVD video track in Dolby
Digital surround, a brief TV interview and some additional stills.

The CD side has highlights, the DVD side has all 24 movements of the
Nutcracker. The DVD-Audio is PCM at 24/96 resolution. The performance is
good with a few bad moments, the overall quality suffers from some odd
acoustics; this was recorded in perhaps a hard hall with excess reverb.
This adds some interesting depth to the surround, but makes the
performance a little confusing. Also the quality will vary depending on
your surround settings, some adjustments may be necessary to get the
best effect.
