Robert Cummings
Classical Net, February 2015

[The Nutcraker] is excellent: dancing is superb, especially from the two leads, Anna Tsygankova and Matthew Golding; the Holland Symfonia performs with accuracy and total commitment under the knowing hand of conductor Ermanno Florio; and the production values are consistently high.

The dancing in Swan Lake is excellent too, and again the two lead dancers stand out…The Orchestra of the Teatro alla Scala plays with spirit and accuracy for conductor James Tuggle whose tempo selections and shaping of the score in general are imaginative and quite sensitive to Tchaikovsky’s unique melodic and rhythmic persona.

Strongly recommended. © 2015 Classical Net Read complete review

MusicWeb International, December 2014

The three performances vary markedly in their approach. What is consistent throughout these three discs is the high standard of performance, especially from the leading dancers.

Nonetheless, I can certainly see Santa’s sack bulging with copies of this very recommendable box set as he goes about his seasonal deliveries to children—and to those “taller girls”—of all ages. © 2014 MusicWeb International Read complete review
