Notes & Reviews:

Over a period of a year between 2013-14, famed Russian conductor Valery Gergiev and his Mariinsky Orchestra recorded Dmitri Shostakovich's Symphonies (15) and Concertos (6) Live at Salle Pleyel in Paris. What an adventure for the artists and the big production team! Never before in the history of television has something like this been undertaken including the very first "Ring" for television at Bayreuth. The Shostakovich Cycle includes introductions for each of the symphonies and concertos by Valery Gergiev. A fascinating documentary "Dmitri Shostakovich - "A Man of Many Faces" explores the life and work of the composer based on rare archival footage and interviews. A comprehensive book with texts particular to each symphony and concerto provides deep insights into the Shostakovich's life and work. And the Play Music Only Function is available to experience Shostakovich's wonderful music nonstop!
