Format: Audio CD
This is a spectacular symphony, written in 1942 as Shostakovich was himself besieged by the Waffen SS onslaught. Consider for a moment that the outcome of the War was far from certain and that the Wolf was literally at the Great Bear's throat. The composer himself must have had no illusions that Death might come at any time. That it didn't and we have the legacy of this work as a result are reasons to be cheerful, and yet the listener must be aware that Shostakvich had no such reasons at the time of composition.
Anyway, the music itself is a big, sprawling work that is performed with aplomb, and recorded in superb audio quality.
Play it LOUD as it demands; the huge martial themes, heavy percussion and all round power will wake the dead. I tend to go for the heavier works in the Classical vein, and while this is by no means the equivalent of Mars (Holst), there is enough fury vented here to sate my appetite. There are also of course plenty of "calm before the storm" moments as well!

It works isolated or as a companion piece to the similiarly militaristic Symphony 8 by Shostakovich (I don't think 8 is quite as heavy though).

As with Naxos, the liner notes are there to provide info particularly on the man's wartime experience of creating the symphony itself.

A soviet masterpiece given a masterful Russian performance. No more to say except buy it, listen and imagine the siege of Leningrad.

Yablonsky has made quite few records for Naxos and has always turned in reliable performances. I was particularly lucky to find a Naxos SACD recording of his of the complete Swan Lake. (Yes, Naxos did produce some SACDs in the early days of that format, but soon ceased.) The performance, here, is good and the sound quality, while not top drawer, very acceptable.
