Shostakovich: The Nose / Gergiev, Mariinsky Orchestra, Et al

Notes & Reviews:

"Valery Gergiev, obviously in his element and with his own orchestra and (spectacular) chorus, gives the work form and pathos while making certain that absurdity and satire reign supreme. This is, by the way, the first release on the Mariinsky label and it's quite an auspicious start. Fabulous fun!" -ClassicsToday (10/10)

The Mariinsky Theatre's new version of 'The Nose' bring Shostakovich's difficult piece spectacularly to life. This sharply observed two-CD set from the Mariinsky Theatre transcends the snags, harnessing the score's avant-garde idiom together with its thrusts of mordant Gogolian satire, its cunning musical characterisation and whirlwind fantasy to reveal the opera in all its bizarre brillance. -Telegraph (London)
