Shostakovich: Symphony No.11 (Vasily Petrenko) (Naxos: 8.572082)



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Charismatic young conductor Vasily Petrenko launches his Shostakovich Symphonies series with the Eleventh, a highly charged depiction of the 'Bloody Sunday' massacre of over two hundred peaceful demonstrators by Czarist soldiers outside the Winter Palace in St Petersburg in 1905.

The 1905 Symphony is scored for a sizeable orchestra of triple woodwind, four horns, three each of trumpets and trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion, celesta, harps and strings.

The Symphony makes extensive use of revolutionary songs as thematic elements, as it progresses, without pause, from the glacial opening movement, Palace Square, to the terrifying massacre and its aftermath, The Ninth of January, the funereal third movement, Eternal Memory, and the final movement, The Tocsin, which culminates with cataclysmic bell strokes.

?á\Vasily Petrenko and the RLPO here notch up another commanding success with a dynamic recording of Shostakovich's Symphony No 11..... the symphony possesses a pungent emotional substance and savage energy that this interpretation intensifies with incisive attack and combative urgency ....Petrenko has a clear sense of the music's ominous, emphatic drama ..... The RLPO is on top form here.... This is a gripping, visceral performance. The Telegraph (5 Star)"
