Notes & Reviews:

A dramatic and exciting account of Shostakovich's penultimate symphony, in a live recording with astonishing performances by soloists Gal James and Thomas Oliemans. The poems are sung in the original Russian version, while conductor Gordan Nikoli c brings a totally Slavic drive to the score. One of the great vocal masterpieces of the last century!
