Notes & Reviews:
For many years Dmitri Shostakovich's Fourth Symphony was icebound, until the political thaw under Khrushchev made it possible to go ahead with its premiere. The premiere was delayed for twenty-five years. Shostakovich claimed to the censors that he had been working on a new version all along but presented the composition in its original, unrevised form - a masterpiece that inspired ovations among the public and the press. Roman Kofman and the Beethoven Orchestra of Bonn have recorded this work as Vol. 8 of Shostakovich's complete symphonies for MDG demonstrating the brilliance that we have come to expect from them.
