Shostakovich: Symphony no 13 / Temirkanov, Saint Petersburg

Album Summary

>Shostakovich, Dmitri : Symphony no 13 in B flat minor, Op. 113 "Babi Yar"
Performer Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Temirkanov's Petersburg basses speak and speak about their words, unencumbered by the basic need to get them right, and without having to take their expressive cue solely from the conductor. This helps the episodes in the 'Babi Yar' first movement unfold with an inevitability that few Western recordings can match... Overall then, this displaces the Gothenburg/Jarvi account as my preferred modern studio version." -Gramophone
