Format: Audio CD
The late Giuseppe Sinopoli (who would be only 65 now if he hadn't died of a premature heart attack in 2001) had a controversial tenure with the Philharmonia, but it was the British critics who noticed him early on and who kept up an enthusiastic drumbeat for his recordings. This Tchaikovsky Pathetique came out in 1991, and the Gramophone's reviewer expressed surprise that it was better than the two other new recordings that came out at the same time, a reissue on CD of an old Barbirolli performance from the Fifties and a new release by Muti and the Philadelphia Orch. (Although out of print, like all but a portion of Sinopoli's discography, it can be found as an MP3 download or in DG's big box set of the conductor's complete orchestral recordings, available primarily in Italy, so far as I can gather, unless you pay for an import).

How remarkable that a trained physician, who wrote a dissertation on criminal anthropology, manged to also study composition under Stockhausen, become an prominent amateur Egyptologist, and then rise to the top ranks of conductors is astonishing. Sinopoli was a divider rather than a uniter, and at least one prominent U.S. orchestra refused to have him back as a guest conductor after the musicians protested about his lack of skill. But I was a fan form the start, and I feel justified by this excellent Pathetique, which is full of energy, variety, and passion. the first movement moves quickly enough to seem almost like Toscanini or at least Reiner, with the emphasis on dramatic contrast rather than romantic sentiment. Yet the phrasing of the big tune is full of feeling - you are reminded that Sinopoli's natural home was the opera pit.
