Christmas Music for Varied Sensibilities


City Ballet under the direction of David Zinman. On the “soundtrack” album (featuring a painting of a nutcracker on the booklet cover),

the ballet score is offered truncated but otherwise unadulterated; on the other disc

(illustrated with a still from the film), a shorter version of the same performance is overlay and filled out with a narration by actor Kevin Kline.

I draw Kline’s text from the book by Joel Meyerowitz; for kids who want

to relive the experience of a theatrical “Nutcracker” again and again, the narrated version seems made to order.

“XXFIRST CENTURY MESSIAH” Kathy Geisler, synthesist (Well-Tempered Recordings)

People elsewhere in the world regard it, but in the United States “Messiah” counts as Christmas music. Live performances of the oratorio abound

at this time of a year, and so do recordings.
