Shostakovich: Symphony No. 8 – London Philharmonic Orchestra, Gennady Rozhdestvensky


Composed during the Second World War, Shostakovich’s Eighth Symphony is a powerful work that juxtaposes music of unremitting bleakness and moments of shattering brutality, ending in a tentative expression of optimism. Today it stands not only as a chilling reminder of some of the darkest days of the twentieth century, but also as a reminder of Shostakovich’s acute musical imagination and craftsmanship. This performance was recorded live during a concert in the Royal Festival Hall in 1983.



"...No hesitation, then, recommending this version ..." ****
