Not fiery enough for me

"The performances of both works are fine, but never quite catch the right amount of fire/energy. Everything sounds very tame and reined in. Comparing the Blacher to the great recordings by Kegel and Solti, the playing is not nearly as incisive and the contrasts just aren't as emphasized - the jazzy variations sound stilted. I'd say the same goes for the Tchaikovsky symphony, which is a nice performance but not in any way distinctive. Part of this may be due to the blunting of the recorded sound, which fails to ever really offer any impact in loud passages.
