Notes & Reviews:
This celebrated symphony, completed in 1943, commemorates the siege of Leningrad during the Second World War, in which over 630,000 people lost their lives. The original score was actually smuggled out of the Soviet Union on microfilm and premiered in London and eventually performed in the US by Toscanini and the NBC Symphony Orchestra.
