Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Two years after its triumphant 1934 premiere, Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk was condemned by Joseph Stalin. Nearly four decades later, Mstislav Rostropovich – Shostakovich's student and friend – and his wife Galina Vishnevskaya became political exiles from the Soviet Union. It was in London that the celebrated conductor and soprano made this world premiere recording of the original, controversial version of the opera, unleashing all its passion, brutality and dark, cynical humour. from The Home of Opera series
