Notes & Reviews:
Superbly recorded on the spot with the New York Philharmonic, which finds it's best colors, this version of the Shostakovich Symphony No. 7 is one of the most successful among recent recordings.
MusicWeb International, 30th May 2013
Masur gives a straightforward, very reliable performance of this symphony and if that sounds like faint praise it's not intended that way. There are no unwarranted histrionics in his performance and this vastly experienced conductor is a good guide to this score.
Recording information: Avery Fisher Hall, New York (05/1998).
