Vigorous, but somehow characterless, performance. Strings sound pallid (from the front center balcony). Some beautiful brass playing in the third movement. Both vocal soloists very good in their individual parts, but were overwhelmed by the orchestra in the finale, did not soar above it.
A strangely unsatisfactory performance.
