Produktinfo

The three full-length ballet scores that Dmitry Shostakovich wrote between 1925 and 1935 remain among his least known works. The Golden Age revolves around the visit of a Soviet football team to a Western city (referred to as 'U-town') at the time of an industrial exhibition, only for its heroic sporting and social endeavours constantly to be undermined by hostile administrators, decadent artistes and corrupt officials. Even before its premiere Shostakovich had prepared a suite, including the famous Polka (Naxos 8.553126), which barely hints at the dissonant harmonies and intricate contrapuntal designs to be found elsewhere in the ballet. This recording is the first to present the work complete with all repeats observed, enabling listeners to assess the ballet in all its exhilarating and, at times, anarchic intensity.

Pressestimmen

H. Koegler in FonoForum 02 / 07: "Da die Interpretation dieses musikalischen Cartoons durch das Royal Scottish National Orchestra unter José Serebrier nichts an ätzender Schärfe zu wünschen übrig lässt und die Klangtechnik den instrumentalen Konturen noch gleichsam ein Stahlkorsett eingezogen hat, explodiert diese Ballettbombe."
