Shostakovich: Symphony No. 4

London Symphony Orchestra
Gianandrea Noseda (conductor)

Shostakovich at one point thought his Fourth Symphony was the best thing he’d ever written. Extravagant and challenging in equal measure, it’s a work of epic proportions, requiring over 100 musicians including large percussion and brass sections. Owing to Soviet censure, the work went unperformed for almost 30 years after it was completed, until in 1961 it was revealed as one of the significant milestones of the composer’s output, the work that solidified him as a master symphonist.

Apart from the fact that the comment section is for leaving comments on the recording listed, it strikes me as odd that you have detailed (inside?) information that is not available on the site of Presto Classics.

The recording details (data) are from the booklet available for viewing online. Once the album above has been submitted here the comment above becomes irrelevant, I am aware of that. However, as the forthcoming album to be a continuation to the series, the comment above has connection to the albums already submitted here.
