When conductor Yevgeny Svetlanov tours the United States, he usually has to be just as prepared to talk politics as he is to perform Russian music. After more than 25 years as artistic director for the Moscow-based U.S.S.R. State Symphony, Svetlanov, 62, brings the orchestra back to North America for its seventh time amid even more political turmoil than during previous visits. "But this time there are hot points here as well as there," he said, chuckling with a bit of irony.

There is no confusing the U.S.S.R. State Symphony--which music director Yevgeny Svetlanov brought Tuesday to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion for the first of two Music Center concerts--with the Leningrad Philharmonic, heard in the same venue earlier this season. If the Leningraders are aristocrats with muscle, the Moscow-based State Symphony might be likened to muscle-bound blue-collar workers.

With Mahlermania a thing of the past and some of his once-esoteric and controversial scores seemingly settling into the standard repertory, the composer has become fair game. That is to say, his music is coming to be treated as casually or sloppily as the most familiar Beethoven or Tchaikovsky. Something quite special in the way of Mahler performance therefore may not be noticed either, given the vast number of available recordings.
