Notes & Reviews:
Although Stalingrad and the chaos of World War II did not form the programmatic background to Shostakovich's 8th Symphony, they did provide impetus for its creation. "I am not the only one who is grateful to the war for the chance to express himself," he sardonically summed it up. This release continues Herbig's exceptional cycle.
