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.

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.
