nitially damned with faint praise by the Tsar upon its first performance in 1890, Tchaikovsky’s most famous work has become an enduring favourite and appears here in its entirety performed by Sir Simon Rattle and the Berliner Philharmoniker.
‘Rattle is always heartfelt and expansive, and the playing of the Berliners is glorious.’ The Sunday Times. This recording version of the Nutcracker is already a milestone of the discography and one of Rattle & Berliner Philharmoniker best-selling album together; last but not least Christmas is definitively the best period to sell this repertoire.
