Beethovens Violinkonzert galt noch beträchtliche Zeit nach seiner Uraufführung 1806 als nahezu unspielbar, obwohl es der Wiener Geiger Franz Clement, der es zum 1. Mal aufführte "mit größter Wirkung produzierte". Wegen seiner lyrischen Schönheit steht es in der Gunst der Hörenden wie der Interpreten ganz obenan, genauso wie die beiden Romanzen für Violine und Orchester. In der Interpretation von Maxim Vengorow ist von den technischen Schwierigkeiten nichts zu spüren, zusammen mit dem London Symphony Orchestra unter Mstislav Rostropowitsch entstand eine hochkarätige Einspielung

Symphony no. 8 by Dmitriĭ Dmitrievich Shostakovich( )

17 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 510 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

Mstislav Rostropovich and Galina Vishnevskaya : Russia, music, and liberty by Mstislav Rostropovich( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a vivid portrait of two musicians whose lives have been both fairy-tale love story and front-page history: the shared saga of the foremost cellist of his generation and his country's reigning diva. Together they suffered exile from their beloved Russia for their outspoken advocacy of freedom but returned in triumph after the dissolution of the repressive regime that had stripped them of their citizenship. As both artist and rebel, Rostropovich has come to be known as a "Solzhenitsyn with cello case and baton," and his recent distinguished presence in Washington, D.C., as conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra is another important chapter in music history
