Release Date:09/06/2013;Notes:When the evenings grow longer, the autumn leaves begin to fall and Jack Frost calls during the night, then it is time to conjure up the magic world of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker while relaxing in front of a crackling fire. In this double album you will hear the delightfully varied ballet music in it's entirety and not just the usual highlights. Each and every one of the highly individual numbers, be it a dance, a march or a waltz, is enchanting with it's ever varying orchestral coloring, here merry and impudent and tripping along lightly without a care in the world, there sturdy and vigorous, even coarse. _x000B__x000B__x000B__x000B__x000B__x000B__x000B__x000B__x000B__x000B__x000B__x000B__x000B__x000B_The Orchestra de la Suisse Romande, led by it's conductor of many years standing, Ernest Ansermet, is very much at home in Russian repertoire and masters the occasional immense difficulties of the score with bravado. The DECCA team has once again proved it's worth and leaves any nuts which still need to be cracked to the hi-fi equipment - the airy strings, the delicate triangles, the thrill of cymbals clashing, and the wooden clack of the castanets. And if, by an amazing coincidence, the heating should fail when you are listening to this record, there is no reason to worry - this music is guaranteed to warm the cockels of your heart and keep Jack Frost from the door..
