Orchestra: Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. Conductor: Leonard Bernstein. Composer: Peter Tchaikovsky. Audio CD (October 25, 1990). And the relationship certainly did not grow less problematic later in Bernstein's career. His fifth symphony with the New York Philharmonic is, in my eyes, a failure, yet it is coupled with one of the most riveting performances of Romeo and Juliet ever made. With the Israel Philharmonic he produced for instance a famous - or infamous - Pathetique worth hearing as an idiosyncratic curiosity (but not comparable to his equally idiosyncratic but absolutely stunningly magnificent Dvorak ninth)
1812 Overture - Tchaikovsky. 2. Marche Slave - Tchaikovsky. 3. Romeo And Juliet: Overture-Fantasy - Tchaikovsky. Orchestra: New York Philharmonic Orchestra. Bernstein provides a thrilling 1812 without cannon, but the drum sure sounds enough like one to be more than acceptable. The recording is on the dry side, but otherwise is exceptional. March Slav is given and intense and emotional reading and the New York brass really show their stuff. Romeo and Juliet is perhaps Tchaikovsky’s most beautiful and emotional works. It, too, is given a superbly emotional performance.

Never has Tchaikovsky's music sounded as excessive as it sounds under Bernstein, with the 1812 Overture and especially Romeo and Juliet sounding like a sequence of unrelated sentimental events joined only by the embarrassing excitement of the conductor and composer. Like the conductor, the New York Philharmonic was a consistently terrible Tchaikovsky orchestra, the composer's gaudy colors and melodies matched by the orchestra's rude colors and crude playing.
