Albeniz's four-volume "Iberia Suite" for piano is so sumptuous and varied in mood, color, rhythm and melody--and so demanding of the virtuoso pianist--that you can understand the impulse to orchestrate the work to give it wider exposure. But Lopez-Cobos' leisurely, broadly generalized account doesn't make a strong case.

This is a graphic example of a bargain label taking on a full-priced label in a repertory staple and running them off the court. Lopez-Cobos has built a magnificent orchestra in Cincinnati, but his recordings rarely lift off the pedestrian level (his Mahler Ninth being a glowing exception).

The reasons orchestras tour may be as various as the ensembles themselves, but Jesus Lopez-Cobos didn't hesitate when asked why his Cincinnati Symphony hits the road: "It's very important--especially for our orchestra, which is the only one in town--to go out where there are other orchestras, to hear and be heard in other places. And for the musicians, trying to do their best every night over an intensive trip can be very positive."

Spanish conductor Jesus Lopez-Cobos has said he feels more at home in Berlin than Madrid and more attuned to Wagner than Falla. Thursday evening though, he seemed quite at home at Hollywood Bowl, and did just fine by Falla, thank you. Ironically, what Lopez-Cobos' account of Falla's "The Three-Cornered Hat" ballet music needed most was a degree of Wagnerian indulgence. There was a sense of restraint throughout that often undercut even the sterner expressive gestures.

Touring orchestras often play it safe with repertory, but the Cincinnati Symphony's two programs over the weekend at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts had seat belts and life jackets on. Conducted by Jesus Lopez-Cobos, in his second decade as Cincinnati's music director, the orchestra offered Beethoven's Seventh Symphony, Dvorak's "New World" Symphony and "Carnival" Overture, Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto and music by Ravel, the most modern composer on the two programs.
