Notes & Reviews:

Ever the humorist, Shostakovich delighted in placing allusions in his works. The Symphony No.15 is particularly rich with these references. In addition to the cryptic hints to his own music, it includes an outburst of Rossini's William Tell Overture, allusions to Mikhail Glinka and Gustav Mahler and the use of Richard Wagner's Fate leitmotif from the Ring Cycle. It is featured here in a program that includes Shostakovich's Suite on Verses of Michelangelo and his Novorossiysk Chimes.
