Symphony No. 11, Op. 103, 'The Year 1905' The Palace Square: Adagio. Composer(s) Dmitri Shostakovich. Russia's foremost conductor, Alexander Lazarev, conducts Shostakovich's nationalistic Symphony No. 11, the RSNO's debut on Linn Records. Lazarev wings passion from the RSNO. They play with sweat-drenched ferocity and heart-tugging pathos.
WDR Sinfonieorchester Köln. Adagio - The Palace Square. This formidable conductor-orchestra team offer here their third instalment in a series of works by Shostakovich, Symphony No. 11, a tragic and poignant masterpiece subtitled The Year 1905. Bychkov’s indelible association with Shostakovich makes this an essential release. The performance from the WDR Symphony Orchestra is compelling at both ends of the dynamic spectrum, from the heart-rending funereal tread of the opening paragraph of 'In Memoriam' to the savage fugue of the '9th January'. Half a century on from its composition and a full century.
