Shostakovich: Symphonies Nos. 1, 14, & 15; Chamber Symphony in C Minor / Nelsons, Boston Symphony
In this latest installment in "an ongoing Shostakovich survey that has rightly won him three Grammy Awards" (NY Times), Andris Nelsons and the BSO bookend the composer's brilliant symphonic career. Nearly half a century lies between Shostakovich's debut with the 1st, premiered before his 20th birthday, and the 15th, written under the shadow of his own mortality.
Nelsons’s scrupulous, atmospheric attention to dynamic detail, the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s sophisticated beauty and perfect engineering combine to give us finetuned mastery in Shostakovich’s last and most refined symphony, the Fifteenth.
