    Does anyone have know of a definitive version of the Nutcracker Suite on CD? I'm looking for both a good quality recording and excellent performance if it's available. But prefer the performance over the recording where only one is available.

    Also, I'm interested in picking up some harp music (similar to Andreas Vollenweider).

    All suggestions are appreciated.

    Hello Lin,
    This version on Deutsche Grammophon with the Berlin Philharmonic under Rostropovich is a winner. It also includes the Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake suites.
    For myself, I own the complete ballet performed by the Royal Philharmonic under Ashkenazy.
    Kind regards,
    Nicole P.
