Excellent musicianship, fresh arrangements, very enjoyable
I thoroughly enjoyed this CD. The arrangements for the selections from "The Nutcracker" truly captured the beauty, mystery, and excitement of Tchaikovsky's original orchestral scoring which was enhanced by the unique sound of a percussion ensemble.

Beautiful Christmas Marimba music
This is a fabulous CD! We borrowed a friends' to enjoy over Christmas, but then had to have our own. My husband takes marimba lessons so we also bought one to give as a gift to his instructor. She will love it too!
