Shostakovitch Symphony no10.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shostakovich: Symphony No. 10 (Audio CD)
A top notch performance of the 10th. This is the one I've been waiting for to replace the Svetlanov vinyl version on EMI/Melodiya which I've played to destruction. I've never been enamoured with the Karajan version which, to me, sounds too Germanic and the others which have come out over the years have also never "done it" for me like Svetlanov. This version, on the other hand, is absolutely marvellous. The RLPO is on superb form for Petrenko and at times, even sounds like the USSR Symphony in Svetlanov's version. To say I like it is something of an understatement. Oh yes, one to keep and treasure.
