Notes & Reviews:
The live stereo performance of Shostakovich's Symphony No.8 was never recorded commercially by Svetlanov and is therefore an addition to Svetlanov's discography. Shostakovich Symphony No.8 is regarded as one of Shostakovich's major wartime works written in 1943 two years after the "Leningrad Symphony" and show the composer in a bitterly, disillusioned mood. This is being released to coincide with the Shostakovich anniversary.
