Produktinfo

A third of a century after his death the symphonies of Dmitry Shostakovich have moved to the absolute centre of the repertoire. Written during World War II, the unusually constructed Eighth Symphony is a powerful work built on striking contrasts between music which is at times unremittingly bleak and at others brutally intense. The predominantly slow opening movement, punctuated by a terrifying central crescendo, is followed by a scherzo of savage parody. At the heart of the Symphony a second fast movement builds remorselessly to a shattering climax over pounding timpani. The rapt, largely introspective fourth movement, Largo, leads straight into the last movement, Allegretto, which seems to reach out for hope in an uncertain world. Vasily Petrenko's acclaimed interpretations of Shostakovich's Symphonies No. 11 (8.572082) and Nos. 5 and 9 (8.572167) are also available.

Pressestimmen

FonoForum 09 / 10: "Das Orchesterspiel kann nur als phänomenal bezeichnet werden: Vor allem im ersten Satz, aber auch in der Passacaglia des vierten Satzes und in der Coda des Finales produziert der Streicherkörper ein atemberaubendes Pianissimo. Holz- und Blechbläser überwältigen in den gewaltigen Ausbrüchen der Ecksätze, besonders jedoch in den zahlreichen Solopassagen."
