Notes & Reviews:

In celebration of the Shostakovich Year, the SWR kaiserslautern Orchestra presents a feature-length program of two of Shostakovich's many film scores. The lively and sardonic wit of Shostakovich's early score for the silent film New Babylon stands in stark contrast to the darkly-hued orchestrations of the much later A Year Is Like a Lifetime, composed at the same time as the massive choral Symphony No. 13. A collection that no Shostakovich lover will want to be without!
