Bookmark and Share

For their second release on Deutsche Grammophon, following up on their Grammy-winning recording of the Symphony No 10, Andris Nelsons and the Boston Symphony Orchestra are heard in live performances of Dmitri Shostakovich's popular, pre-war Fifth Symphony, the darkly compelling mid-war Eighth, and the elusive, post-victory Ninth. Also included are excerpts from Shostakovich's incidental music for a farcical 1932 Moscow production of Hamlet.
