CD Review - Symphony No 10 - Shostakovich - RLP0/Petrenko Series,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shostakovich: Symphony No. 8 (Audio CD)
This recording is part of the admirable Naxos budget price CD series of symphonies by Shostakovich with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra under the able Russian conductor Vasily Petrenko. Although I am not first and foremost a devotee of twentieth-century music and prefer small-scale chamber performances to symphonies, this series presents an ideal opportunity to acquire a worthy version of the complete cycle of one of the modern age's great symphonic creations - with the Soviet Union history background and influence in evidence (a tale to be told in itself). These performances and recordings deliver a stirring sound-world. Prompt and pleasing order/delivery service.
