Dmitri Shostakovich: Symphony No. 4 (arrangement for two pianos by Shostakovich)

Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Supertrain Records is proud to present Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 4 arranged for two pianos by Shostakovich and recorded by pianists Maki Namekawa and Dennis Russell Davies. In the mid-1930s Dmitri Shostakovich was on top of the world artistically. In one fell swoop that all changed when his opera “Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District” was condemned in the pages of Pravda –a review likely penned by Stalin himself. So it came as no surprise that at this time his next major work, his Fourth Symphony, was withdrawn from performance after a number of rehearsals. It was deemed simply too risky and provocative to perform it. The original score to Symphony No. 4 was lost and remains unfound. It was only by virtue of having the original orchestral parts from rehearsals and this arrangement for two pianos that Shostakovich made to perform the piece in private for his friends, that the work was able to be reconstructed. This masterful performance by pianists Maki Namekawa and Dennis Russell Davies brings to light the majesty of this underappreciated work.
