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.

The State Symphony of Russia, which played a triumphant concert at the Orange County Performing Arts Center on Sunday afternoon, used to be just one of 10 government-sponsored orchestras in Communist Moscow. Formed in 1936, the mighty ensemble made its first foreign appearance in 1957 and its first visit to Southern California three years later. The 1994 tour is the eighth for the State Symphony in North America.

With a new series that will bring four orchestras of international repute to downtown San Diego, the La Jolla Chamber Music Society has finally staked a serious claim outside the boundaries of chamber music. For the last two years the organization has been host of a successful downtown series devoted to big-name performers and ensembles, including Sir Georg Solti and the Chicago Symphony. The society's orchestral series will open on Sept. 28 with a concert at Symphony Hall by the St.

The Moscow State Symphony transfered its activities to Pasadena Civic Auditorium on Thursday night for the second of its two Southern California appearances. This concert was directed by Yevgeny Svetlanov, who is listed as chief conductor (in Costa Mesa on Wednesday, the conductor had been Mark Ermler). Svetlanov exudes authority. He dispenses with a baton and although he has a score on the stand in front of him and flips pages occasionally, he obviously does not rely upon such a prop.

Erich Vollmer, general manager of the Orange County Philharmonic Society, disclosed this week that he is negotiating to make Costa Mesa a stop on the 1988-89 West Coast tour of the Vienna Philharmonic with Leonard Bernstein as conductor. He said the orchestra would provide the kind of orchestral "centerpiece" that he acknowledges is missing for the 1987-88 season. Vollmer said he is optimistic that the negotiations will succeed.

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.

An attempt to cram more dancing into a traditional "Nutcracker" reaches a dead end tonight in the lavish Royal Ballet version on PBS. Over the last 16 years, Peter Wright's staging and Julia Trevelyan Oman's designs have grown familiar to Americans through telecasts on cable and a home video edition. In this revision (videotaped in 2000), the standard Clara story is again supplemented by a prologue and epilogue depicting Drosselmeyer's efforts to rescue his young nephew from a curse.
