The two pieces before the intermission are good and interesting, though there were several points where the players were imperfectly unified in rhythm. The piano was sometimes overshadowed by the volume of the orchestra. The Tchaikovsky symphonic poem after intermission was wonderful and moving and well done, though. Just be fortified with patience, since the piece does last an hour.
