Notes & Reviews:
Described in the BBC Music Magazine as "the finest Shostakovich interpreter of his generation", Mark Wigglesworth began his cycle of Shostakovich's symphonies with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, continuing since 2005 on the other side of the English Channel with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra. The cycle as a whole has been described as having the "particular characteristics of high seriousness, fine detailing and a certain fierceness of articulation" (Gramophone) as well as benefiting from engineering which is "outstanding in its naturalness, brilliance, and impact" (ClassicsToday.com).

"[Wigglesworth] gets playing of great refinement from the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, setting the scene in the opening movement The Palace Square perfectly, but can also conjure up raw brutality in the final movement with tingling vividness when required... the 11th has rarely seemed so cogent."Notes & Reviews:
