Product Details


Shostakovichs Sixth and Twelfth Symphonies both had their origins in large-scale projects about Lenin, though the Sixth was eventually to emerge as one of the composers most abstract and idiosyncratic symphonies. The long, intensely lyrical and meditative slow movement that opens the work is one of the composers most striking. The Twelfth, one of the least played of Shostakovichs symphonies in the West, became less a celebration of Lenins legacy than a chronological depiction of events during the Bolshevik Revolution. The playing is fabulously crisp and committed, while the interpretations combine atmosphere and a sense of proportionto the benefit of the youthful First, which receives an eerily effective performance, free of exaggeration. (Financial Times on Naxos 8.572396 / Symphonies Nos. 1 and 3)
