Format: Audio CD
It takes a special touch to enliven the four Orchestral Suites by Tchaikovsky, which stand somewhere between symphonic grandness and balletic vivacity. All are mature works (Suite no. 1 was composed between Sym. 4 and the Manfred sym.), and by the time the composer reached suite no. 3 (my favorite) and the semi-popular Suite no. 4 "Mozartiana," the movements he included don't seem like snippets form his symphony sketchbook - that can seem like the case in Suites no. 1 and no. 2, which are like first-rate second-rate Tchaikovsky.

The special touch that these works take is akin to the touch required in, say, Sym. 3 "Plish," where everything is beautiful yet repetitive - the suites aren't developed symphonically, with a few exceptions, and the first two feature fairly deadly academic fugues, as does the finale of the Manfred Sym., signs of Tchaikovsky's insecurity in the face of German academic requirements. Russian conductors, who grow p with the Suites as standard fare, almost always have the right touch. I was reminded of that by Svetlanov's excellent version of the first two Suites, which is more vibrant than Neeme Jarvi's straightforward readings. At present almost the only Western recordings of these works are by Antal Dorati, so the good news is that Jarvi's accounts are better played and recorded.

There's more competition in suites 3 and 4, even by non-Russians like Lorn Maazel, whose Deca recording of Suite no. 3, coupled with no. 4 under Ansermet, has been reissued by the Australian Eloquence label, a foreign branch of Decca. Tilson Thomas's version of both late Suites is available as the final disc in Abbado's Tchaikovsky symphony cycle on Sony.
