Symphony no. 8 by Dmitriĭ Dmitrievich Shostakovich( )

208 editions published between 1960 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 4,986 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shostakovich's grim Eighth Symphony was written in 1943 and premiered by its dedicatee, Evgeny Mravinsky, whose recordings of the work still stand supreme. Now, Mariss Jansons, who as a young conductor was mentored by Mravinsky, leads his Pittsburgh players in a stellar concert performance recorded live. Orchestral execution is first-rate, and Jansons doesn't smooth over or prettify the hourlong work, soaked in the composer's bitterness about the Nazi and Stalinist brutality that stamped his life with fear and loathing. The long opening Adagio, with its brooding strings and pitiless brass eruptions, is shattering, as are the following grotesque Allegretto and the relentlessly powerful third movement. The final two movements maintain the bleak mood, though the finale tries to recover a measure of joy amid the gloom. Jansons and his orchestra sustain this potent work's intensity throughout, confirming the Eighth as one of the composer's most important and fully realized works. The filler is an interesting rehearsal excerpt

One of the most-renowned conductors alive today, Mariss Jansons continues his journey through the greatest 20th century symphonic cycle - that of Soviet composer Dmitri Shostakovich. For this recording of the remarkable Fourth Symphony, he conducts one of Europe's top orchestras - the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. Shostakovich's Fourth Symphony is one of the most important in his cycle both musically (it's the first really mature symphony) and historically. Having been attacked by the party for not writing appropriately Soviet music, Shostakovich reacted - fearing for his life - by suppressing this dark and powerful work, which received its premiere only after Stalin's death. Completed in 1936, it was finally heard in 1961, during the Khrushchev "thaw". It proved to be the vital tranistional work in his early career. It is a very Mahlerian work: with its unusual shape; deliberate exess with an enormous orchestra; and the use of popular styles such as dances and marches that appear either straightforwardly or ironically distorted
Symphony no. 10 by Dmitriĭ Dmitrievich Shostakovich( )

129 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 2,779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shostakovich's monumental Symphony No. 10 ranks among his finest works. From the bleak introspection of the extended opening movement, through the graphic evocation of violence in the explosive Allegro, and the eerie dance-like Allegretto alternating between dark and light, to the final movement's dramatic climax, this is a work of breathtaking musical contrasts. In 2010 Vasily Petrenko was named Male Artist of the Year at the Classical Brit Awards"--Booklet

The Fifth Symphony in D minor, Op. 47, was written in 1937. Shostakovich composed the piece in a remarkably short space of time, beginning work on the score on 18 April and completing it on 20 July 1937. The third movement was written in only three days. The symphony was first performed in Leningrad in the Great Hall of the Philharmonic on 21 November 1937 by the Academic Philharmonic orchestra conducted by Evgeny Mravinsky. It was given its first Moscow performance on 29 January 1938 in the Great Hall of the Conservatory by the USSR State Symphony Orchestra conducted by Alexander Gauk. - Preface

The tale of Katerina Ismailova, who is trapped in a loveless marriage. The action takes place in Mtsensk immediately before the Russian Revolution of 1917. In the tradition of "Anna Karenina" and "Madame Bovary" Katerina's fatalistic pusuit of passion has disasterous results
Battleship Potemkin : From the series "The year 1905" by Sergei Eisenstein( Visual )

43 editions published between 1924 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 1,470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sergei Eisenstein's revolutionary feature has long stood as a textbook example of montage editing. In his 20th-anniversary tribute to the 1905 revolution, Eisenstein portrays the revolt in microcosm through a dramatization of the mutiny aboard the Russian battleship Potemkin. Eisenstein's original project was to recreate on film the important revolutionary events of the year 1905. However after filming began in Baku, he changed his plans and decided to focus on the single event of the mutiny of the sailors onboard the Potemkin. The film was shot in Odessa in just six weeks, and was barely finished in time for its premiere, at the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow. Although Bronenoset︠s︡ "Potemkin" was initially presented in Paris, Amsterdam and New York to great acclaim, it was soon banned in most countries until 1952. Bronenoset︠s︡ "Potemkin" brought Soviet cinema onto the international stage and Eisenstein's inspired direction and montage continued to have an impact on filmmaking decades after the film's release
