‘Avoid’ is per­haps harsh: there are no per­ver­si­ties in Sir Andrew Davis’s 2009 in­ter­pre­ta­tion, and the Phil­har­mo­nia’s con­tri­bu­tion has all the rich-toned pro­fes­sion­al­ism one would ex­pect. Yet this is one of those live record­ings where, for what­ever rea­son, the re­sult takes too long to lift it­self be­yond a sense of high-class rou­tine. In Basil Nevin­son’s vari­a­tion (No. 12 out of 14), the mu­sic’s heart at last truly seems to beat. That’s leav­ing it late.
