Quick OverviewCD Shostakovich Symphonies Vol.4 Symphony No.10 (Petrenko)
Shostakovichs monumental Symphony No. 10 ranks among his finest works. From the bleak introspection of the extended opening movement, through the graphic evocation of violence in the explosive Allegro, and the eerie dance-like Allegretto alternating between dark and light, to the final movements dramatic climax, this is a work of breathtaking musical contrasts. In 2010 Vasily Petrenko was named Male Artist of the Year at the Classical Brit Awards. His Naxos recording of Shostakovichs Symphony No. 8 (8.572392), was hailed as yet another Petrenko performance to join the greats (BBC Music Magazine).
