DMITRY SHOSTAKOVICH

 

Symphony No.7 'Leningrad'

 
1 I Allegretto 28:45
2 II Moderato (Poco Allegretto) 15:30
3 III Adagio 19:03
4 IV Allegro non troppo 19:03
   


Shostakovich dedicated his Seventh Symphony to the defiance shown by the citizens of Leningrad in the face of Nazi totalitarianism. Despite the widespread reassessment that has since taken place regarding the inspirations for his symphonies, the ’Leningrad’ symphony remains a highly-potent symbol for the residents of modern-day St Petersburg. 
 
This is the fourth release in Valery Gergiev’s Shostakovich symphony cycle, presenting an emotionally charged performance of the Seventh Symphony.
 
"...The SACD sound is rewardingly high, as is the dynamic range..." ****
 
Greg Keane - Limelight magazine.com - 10 July 2013

 "... I am especially taken with the tragic and yet moving third movement Adagio, where the strings are particularly affecting. The brass as usual are well-balanced and finely-honed..." ****

"... superbly responsive orchestral playing ..."

Erik Levi - BBC Music magazine - March 2013


"...I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again; the Leningrad is a substantial and unsettling work that runs its successor close in terms of musical coherence and sheer dramatic intensity... Unflinching, unerring and, above all, illuminating; a searing Seventh."
