Guest Artists of the Orchestra:

 
Iván Fischer nails his very individual colours to the mast from the opening fanfares, with tiny rhetorical hesitations between the second and the third and third and fourth bars, and then a broadening as the full brass choir marches grimly towards the fanfares repeat. And if that initial description seems to signal an overstated reading, fear not: this Tchaik Four is anything but overstated.
