- Gidon Saks (Bass Baritone)
Notes & Reviews:
"A fitting farewell to the composer's centenary year, this is the symphony to give the lie to those who consider Shostakovich a supine collaborator with the Soviet regime. A five-movement choral work for male voices written in 1962, to poems by Yevgeny Yevtushenko, its protest against anti-Semitism grows into an indictment of the Politburo itself, in stark contrast to its largely Leninist predecessor. The work's brooding, passionate intensity is superbly captured by the RLPO under (the now departed) Gerard Schwarz and resounding soloist Gidon Saks." -The Observer
