Symphony no. 8 by Dmitriĭ Dmitrievich Shostakovich( )

196 editions published between 1960 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 4,829 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

Symphony no. 4 by Dmitriĭ Dmitrievich Shostakovich( )

133 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 3,131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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( )

121 editions published between 1963 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 2,712 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
