André Previn conducts the London Symphony Orchestra in Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker.

"Tchaikovsky's ballets form a wonderful part of his musical expression – perhaps the most wonderful of all … Such were my thoughts as I listened to this enchanting new recording of the Nutcracker by André Previn and the LSO. As an account of the music it seems to me a wonderfully judged combination of skill and affection … [It] is certainly a performance whose strength comes from its simple eloquence – and there is nothing that can make any music sound better than that … There is a poised and sustained rapture about this performance from end to end that is the very definition of good conducting." - Gramophone, January 1973
