The inherent drama of the piece is a useful prelude to the greater drama to come in the composer's fourth symphony. This is a live concert performance, but for some reason at times I found this performance devoid of body in the opening movement, as if those instruments carrying the theme at any one time are over-emphasised. I sensed problems too in the recapitulation of the second subject. Indeed, in the interval between the first and second movements I meditated on whether I had had what David Brown, the most respected living English commentator on the composer, says should have been a "bold, massive ... and stupendous experience."
There are no problems with the second movement; the slower pace at its end is fine. The third movement is OK too, and the finale has probably the strongest performance of all.
Overall, then, this is a very good disc but with some minor problems. However, it does not inspire me to seek out Alsop's other interpretations of Tchaikovsky's symphonic repertoire.
