“Glinka's Symphony… impresses with clean, full wind ensembles and the last-minute unleashing of the USSR State Symphony brass's familiar might. …in Tchaikovsky's Third… Svetlanov has his own compelling agenda in driving the first-movement material from funeral march to Petersburg court ceremonials, a visit to Swan Lake and a final carnival of earthy peasantry. ...unmissable on its own, committed terms.”
