Album Summary

>Shostakovich, Dmitri : Symphony no 4 in C minor, Op. 43
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Import Hybrid-SACD pressing.

BBC Music Magazine
Everything is humanised, so that the conflict of the Finale is a whirlwind battle rather than a grinding mechanism, and even the circus ditties before the final storm have charm as well as nuance. The end is as mesmerising as it can be, raising unmistakeable parallels with the fading heartbeat of Tchaikovsky's Pathétique.

The Telegraph
A performance of the Fourth that makes a terrific impact.

The Times
No elbow jabs, no foaming at the mouth, but an inexorable procession of nightmare, grim jest and desolation, brilliantly played by the Netherlands Radio Symphony Orchestra.
