There's so little to say about this sublime artefact.

It should communicate everything for itself, I suppose.

Perhaps I'll give it a friendly nudge...

A box containing almost all of Shostakovich's work, a small cube that contains all of his furious, tragic, delicious, rapacious, desperate, grandiose, sorrowful...

One of the few items worth the payload weight in the last rocket off of this rock.

All 15 symphonies, Barshai conducting, recorded at the end of the last century with the WDR. Forthright, battering power and gentle understanding, compassion for the compositions... always better than the old western orchestras.

Not always the perfect mastering, but still gains through the terrible, gorgeous fire in the hearts.

Five Chamber symphonies, the Jazz Suites, the Ballet suites, film music, piano concertos, violin concertos, cello concertos and the massive evolving cycle of string quartets that he sadly never got to complete.

This is an artefact, such music to submerge within, to become part of, to spend months drowning within, to be caught in some strange and grand wash and let go, sink deep, pelagic and desperate and hungry and battered, washed ashore raw and hopeless and afire and needing...

There's little point in explaining who conducts and which orchestra is torn out of sound to make each recording. If you're here, you're either an obsessive or a complete newcomer.

If you already know Dmitri's work, then you already know all of these recordings, if you're new, then this, perhaps, is not the place to begin.

By Mart TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 7 May 2008
This Communist red-coloured Brilliant Classics label big box of 27 CDs plus a DVD interview with conductor Rudolf Barshai includes all of Shostakovich's major works - he wrote 110 pieces, 59 of which are included in this collection.

The 1990's recordings of the 15 symphonies have been previously released by Brilliant, and while the Jazz and ballet suites and film music are familiar to many, the chamber music and cello concertos are perhaps less known.

Each CD comes in a (bright red) card sleeve showing track times, recording dates, recording venues, neatly packaged into an 8cm wide box which includes an 88 page booklet (all in English) describing all the works plus short biographies of the soloists. The DVD is a nice bonus which reveals Barshai's thoughts on his lifelong friendship with Shostakovich.

Nothing comes closer to a complete representation of Dmitri Shostakovich's lifetime works than this set.

By Mr. Mark A. Meldon TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 Mar. 2008
An impossible bargain from Brilliant Classics containing all you really need by Shostakovich on 27 CDs in a little red box. The various perfomances are top-stuff too, as reviewed elsewhere.

The symphonies with Barshai are uniformly excelllent and the string quartets fantastic. Everything else is, well, brilliant too.

You owe it to yourself to explore this master of twentieth-century music, and I can think of no better way of doing so. If you look carefully, you can pick this up for £20 - what are they thinking!

By Gengler - Published on Amazon.com

This box set is currently selling for $25-30 - and at that price it's an absolute steal, especially for those who are unfamiliar with the music of DSCH. While Brilliant has recently put out a newer "expanded" version of this set, it's selling for $70-100 and adds very, very little of substance to this box - esp. if vocal music is not your thing. (And even fans of DSCH struggle through many of those works).

The heart of the box are the symphonies, and they are delivered in solid, if not definitive performances by Barshai. The Jazz/Dance/Ballet suites are delightfully played - albeit somewhat roughly by second rate ensembles - the String Quartets by the Rubio Quartet are top-notch, and the violin concerti are performed by no less that David Oistrakh.

While not in the Mravinsky/Kondrashin league, it provides a great deal of pleasure at a modest price. Discover which pieces you most enjoy (but promise you'll stick with the difficult pieces - most are worth the effort) (Well, perhaps not Symphony 12…) and then supplement the box with your choices of Gergiev, Petrenko, Bernstein, Jarvi et al.

This is a large, intoxicating pool to engage in this voyage of discovery. Enjoy!
