Format: Audio CD
Andre Previn's career with the Royal Philharmonic, and his career with Telarc, is strange. Sometimes he and they played and recorded with such lack of life, such limpness, that it was embarrassing. What had been a great career--Previn really reawakened London's musical scene back in the 1970s during his years with the London Symphony--seemed to be dissolving in mush. Then comes a recording like this: a gripping, passionate account of a Tchaikovsky symphony that, honestly, rarely works for me. But there's no problem here. This is a beautifully-recorded, energetically-performed reading of the old warhorse, with tremendous dynamics, scrupulously observed, from the quiet ppp beginning to thundering fortissimos that could get you evicted from your apartment. Throughout are beautifully-observed textures, as the brass, particularly the trombones, deliver bite, the reeds play with sublime clarity, and the timpani delivers rich, *fat* punctuation. Only the strings are a *little* thin here and there--don't look for the lushness of an Ormandy or a Reiner in this Tchaikovsky. Despite that, Previn's take on the symphony here is far more convincing than any of Ormandy's three bland readings (which seemed to get blander as he got older). The first movement march steamrollers you, but the constrasting theme is gentle and perfectly introspective. The famous romantic second movement is delivered convincingly and has a sort of fatalistic inevitability in Previn's steady-as-she-goes hands that raise it above a trite "love song" that it often is. The innocence of the third movement is a beautiful contrast, and Previn plays it straight-faced and simple. The finale roars and heaves and finally explodes in musical (and perhaps extra-musical?) ecstasies.Read more ›

Format: Audio CD
This recording was made in 1984, rather early in the relationship between Previn and the Royal Philharmonic. They seem to have been sympatico from the word go. Previn's 1970's recordings of the Tchaikovsky ballets are considered classics in some quarters. I think the same holds true for this symphony. Previn has a beautiful sense of the ebb and flow of the piece, with the strings following his every nuance with full tone and great delicacy. The highlighting of the usually hidden brass parts is one of the great features of this reading, adding color and texture that is often missing from performances of this piece. When Previn reaches the development section of the fourth movement, the tempo really takes off, in a way that is reminiscent of Dorati's great Mercury Living Presence version. All in all, this has to be one of the best Tchaikovsky 5ths in the catalog. The 1984 engineering is very satisfying, too, rather veiled but full bodied and beautifully detailed.

I regard this as the best recording of the Tchaikovsky Fifth I've heard. I have also heard recordings by Bernstein and Mravinsky, and feel that Previn captures the spirit of the symphony somewhat better than those two conductors. I have not, however, made an extensive study of recordings of this work.

I'm not going to bother with a highly technical review, but I do want to state this has to be one of the finest recordings ever made of this symphony. One reviewer has noted Previn's unerring sense of the ebb and flow in this work, and I wholeheartedly agree. The reviewer also notes the exceptional prominence given to the brass section. I want to add that Previn's use of crescendo in the main brass statements of the first movement creates an emotional impact literally unique to this recording. I've listened to many, many recordings of this symphony and only Previn adds this. I don't care if it's in the score or not - it is wonderful! This is just one of the many felicities Previn brings to this music. Let's face it: if you can't find emotional impact in Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony, where in hell are you going to find it?

This is a magnificent but undeservedly underrated performance, period.

Andre Previn has certainly developed a reputation as one of the greatest conductors. But there have been legitimate concerns that his conducting since he left the LSO has been sometimes lacking vitality. Not here, however. In fact, here Previn delivers a performance that is extremely effective and full of color and life. The Royal Philharmonic gives a wonderful, lush sound that one normally gets only from such orchestras as the LSO and Berlin. The orchestra is superbly balanced. Especially stunning are the brass; they are powerful and clear without droning out the rest of the orchestra. And that's not to mention the strings. Just listen to the entrance of the cellos when they take the theme towards the beginning of the second movement. It is so meltingly beautiful that I am swept off my feet each time I hear it.

The most special aspect of this CD is the contrast between the lyric passages and the dramatic, roof-raising sections. But unlike Bernstein's recording with the New York Philharmonic, the music is not exaggerated. Previn pulls great details from the Royal Philharmonic without resorting to flamboyancy. In the finale, Previn takes the listener on an awe-inspiring ride of excitement. After the three-minute introduction, Previn launches into an exhilarating rendition of triumph. His tempo is unbelievably fast and well calculated. What is so amazing is that even with the racing tempo, miniscule detail is pulled out. To summarize, this is one of the greatest ever recordings of a fantastic piece that firmly places Previn with the best of the best. To say the least, it belongs on your shelf.
