Symphony No. 11 - The Year 1905 Naxos 8.572082


Composer: Dmitry Shostakovich

Conductor: Vasily Petrenko

Orchestra: Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra


Symphony No. 11 - The Year 1905 Review

The good news is this recording of Shostakovich's E­le­venth Symphony is
in the same class as the best ever made. The even better news is it's the start
of a projected series of recordings of all the Soviet master's sympho­nie­s.
Vasily Petrenko has demonstrated before this disc that he is among the most
talented of young Russian conductors with superb recordings of
Tchaikovsky's Man­f­red Symphony and of selected ballet suites. But neither of
those recordings can compare with this Eleventh. Paired as before with the Royal
Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Petrenko turns in a full-scale riot of a
performance that is yet tightly controlled and cogently argued. Said to depict
the failed revolution of 1905, Shostakovich's E­le­venth is not often treated
with the respect it deserves, except, of course, by Yevgeny Mravinsky, the
greatest of Shostakovich conductors whose two accounts have been deemed the most
searing on record. Until now: Petrenko respects the composer's score and his
intentions by unleashing a performance of staggering immediacy and violence, a
virtuoso performance of immense drama, enormous tragedy, and overwhelming power.
Recorded in extraordinarily vivid digital sound, this disc deserves to be heard
by anyone who admires Shostakovich's mu­s­ic. James Leonard - All
