Tippett's First Symphony is a rhythmically complex, vital piece of music that will hold no terrors for anyone who enjoys works like Copland's Short Symphony, which it resembles in many ways. Its slow movement is particularly moving, and the final fugue really works up a head of steam--only to evaporate mysteriously into mid-air. The Piano Concerto is one of the composer's loveliest works, related in substance to the songful lyricism of the opera The Midsummer Marriage. The performances here, part of an ongoing cycle of Tippett's orchestral music, are all excellent. If you enjoy them, you may want to explore other issues in this series. --David Hurwitz
