"Kondrashin (and later Svetlanov) managed to draw the responsiveness and the enthusiam from their players. Svetlanov and his USSR State Symphony played with somewhat a greater sonority whereas Kondrashin and the Moscow Philharmonic has more of the balance and the transparency in their performance. With Tchaikovky's Third Orchestral Suite of 1883, both conductors were successful in painting the sentimental, passionate, optimistic sides of Russia's greatest composer after the 1870s. The performances were consistantly well-played and nothing but pride and admiration were apparent, especially in listening to the Kondrashin's recording. His overall approach to tempo is hardly any different from Svetlanov's (or Jarvi's) but no less appealing, even by a long shot."
