Review By Phil Muse,Audio Video Club of Atlanta,January 2011

There’s nothing like an alert, spirited performance to bring an old symphonic warhorse to life. That’s just what Mariss Jansons, at the podium of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, imparts to Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 in E Minor, Op. 64. Jansons paces this performance so beautifully that we never weary of it at any point in it, which is another way of saying that we never have the feeling of “just marking time” between the big climaxes. As a matter of fact, we have a very strong sense here of the work’s trajectory from a subdued opening with a foreboding of tragedy to an utterly compelling sense of triumph at the end.
