4.0 out of 5 stars Great performance!, 15 Dec 2003

Certainly one of the best recordings currently available! The only drawback is the recording being of a live performance with some VERY disturbing coughing concertgoers, but luckily that only applies to a few passages. The playing of the NYPO is magnificent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Thrilling, 2 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shostakovich : Symphony No.7, 'Leningrad' (MP3 Download)
If you have any doubts, put them aside. This NYPO/Masur performance is stunning. The live recording is one of the very best I have ever encountered. Normally I prefer to avoid 'live' takes, but the engineers for this Teldec project get it spot on. Hard edge to the overall sound, but total clarity, and some stunningly lyrical string playing. The principal flute deserves a medal!. The audience noise is minimal, and although I would normally find myself irritated I was so swept along with the emotional impact of the performance, it made no difference to my enjoyment. The mp 3download cost must be the music bargain of the century so far.

What can I say about this .... It's magnificent and worth buying. The quality of the music is outstanding and anyone who listens to Shostakovich will be in heaven. Go on, give it a whirl ... You won't be disappointed.

If you have never listened to Shostakovich no.7 before pay out three quid and buy this. It would be good at twice the price and as for coughing I have listened to this three times and can't here any.

An excellent recording of Shosta's Leningrad. I like this MP3 recording -- I can listen almost anywhere on my phone and ear-phones. It was a good price as well.
