Shostakovich: The War Symphonies

£19.99

Product description

Shostakovich: Symphonies Nos. 4-9

Kirov Orchestra, Mariinsky Theatre, St. Petersburg, Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, conductor Valery Gergiev

Gergiev's first recordings of the symphonies that Shostakovich wrote during the period 1936 to 1945.

5 CD set in very good condition with booklet. These symphonies are a mirror of Shostakovich's relationship with the Soviet Union over the period. They include the popular 5th symphony, written following the official criticism over his musical style, the huge 7th and 8th symphonies, written as a response to the harrowing experiences of wartime. They conclude with the enigmatic 9th symphony in 1945, a short and accessible work, completely at variance to official expectations of a victory celebration.

These are excellent performances by one of the world's leading conductors for Russian repertoire.
