ORB566 It is an awesome piece, but this part does tend loose that nice feel that the other parts have. Still an awesome part of this suite, and I enjoy listening to it all the time.

laeta_puella eh. this is my favorite movement of the nutcracker suite, but it kind of loses its charm without the celesta- not to mention that amazing bass clarinet solo, which is partially given to the left hand of the piano, but mostly ommited. the clarinet solo, too, is given to the piano- it seems to me that the clarinet solo should stay in when it's aranged as a clarinet solo? but perhaps i don't know enough about this arranging business. either way, my oppinion: soso.
