  1. To me, this lacks the clarity that Tchaikovsky achieved with the use of the celeste – an instrument that his audience would not have heard before – truly innovative. What a vocal version really needs, therefore, is that clarity reproduced by a single treble voice (or at most two, because actually the celeste doubles the melodic line), with the rest of the voices following the orchestral parts – in other words a transcription rather than an adaptation. IMHO Pentatonix – a really clever outfit – miss the mark with this. It’s difficult when dealing with the music of a genius of composition.
