Good but not great,
This review is from: Shostakovitch: Symphony No. 7 'Leningrad' (Audio CD)
I'll keep this short. This is very good performance/interpretation but I'm afraid as with many Gergiev performances it falls short of being great. If you want to really feel the power of this work you should stick to the classic Bernstein, Chicago recording or even better get blown away by the new Andris Nelsons and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra - destined to become the bench mark.
