Hey! I have a question. How come most of the Nutcracker cd's have just collections of songs, and feature songs that are faster or slower than others?

Recordings of the "Nutcracker" and other ballets will vary in length, for many different reasons. Some are more inclusive, others less. In the case of Nutcracker, there's a "Nutcracker Suite" that has been recorded many times. There are also different interpretations some conductors will move at a fast clip, others at a slower pace.
