Excellent collection of some complete symphonies for Shostakovich. A quality of a Naxos register it sometimes is not like this very so much with other collections (to I Brilliant collection equally presupposed of a WDR-Barshai the registers touches more spaced), but a quality of Petrenko the action is very big in general, with better results in some slow movements, although it is not like this well in one the majority of dissonant and complex sections or some the majority of experimental symphonies.
Recommended.

Has bought this like the neighbour boxed - a lot of 5.os resplandores although they are all glorious - I has written the separate description of one 5th.

Has to that say V. Petrenko Is the a lot of estimated, talented young direct. Has-liked me his elegant fashion, natural and has admired his actions with Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. As it was a lot happy to find his Shostakovich the symphonies of cycle have modified for Naxos. Sad to say: I disappointed me. Any sarcasm, any Shostakovich dissonances, some times are too many idyllic or too many lens, some inner tensions of Shostakovich the symphonies are disappeared.. The one who is interested in the complete cycle, would have to look for a excelent box with Rudolph Barshai or, like the second option, partorisca that of Jansons. Unfortunately, a Kondrashin excelent registers - my prime minister preferance - is hard to find and a lot expensive. A lot well the separate action is those with Ancerl and Mravinsky,

has expected until a together of boxes have been released to buy Petrenko Shostakovitch although it has listened each one that like this first. Of cycles more recent, ossia probably of the best and another reviewers has described faithfully individual volumes. This among the chance of map with original coverages for each of some disks and the booklet detailed - in everything in a width of 3 normal jewel-cased cds. Any that loves the complete cycle (or, more probably, another) can do much better that buying this excellently has produced, registered and has touched place.

Has had to turn volume to among 12-15 to take decent volume. Also the cassette that contains symphonies 2 and 15 has not had any volume at all

is a lot ready and frescos ! The old managers have touched Shostkovich symphonies like this heavy ,but Vinogradov tones graceful symphonies like Bramus. I love him.

When Investigations Offenbach find always a same material - the histories of fairy of Hoffman and Orpheus. It was desire partorisca find this particular piece some 10 May of years done... And now it is available....
A pocola operetta has some better tunes of 19th century. I can listen his all day long. Sheer Jewel.

This disk brings together two alive actions of a Philharmonic Soiled in November 2008, both has has sawed productions among a RLPO and a Centre of European Work. A first a one acts of law A husband spends it to him, says a history of Suzanne, the one who with which having a querella with his new husband in his storms of the night of the pair was his room so only to find Florestan, a young composer that creditors of evasions, hiding there. They are joined then for Rosita, the partner of Suzanne, the one who tries to take Suzanne to return to a party, Florestan explains his predicament, and a three tries to find the way to save the honour of Suzanne to take Florestan out of his room and celebrates a-there is remarked. To complicate things, Henri, the new husband of Suzanne, is a bailiff the one who has been touched with following Florestan down. Some finals of operetta felizmente when Florestan agrees his promise of the aunts to paid was all his debts in his own pair, question Rosita to marry, after initial reluctance dresses, with all when finalising well in an end.
An action is excellent, can not relate Petrenko and a RLPO with this class of music, but in this evidence, would have to do more excursions to a world of operetta! Some four soloists am a lot matched and give spirited actions; an interaction among them is wonderful. They are joined on phase for four actors those who recite a dialogue spoken, almost the third of a time of action, which can dip some people was! This in spite of with actions like these and with a catchy the tunes resupplied for Offenbach, ossia the disk the savour.
Another work in a disk yes Offenbach His fables of the Fontaine, the series of six melodies that is treated by some four soloists of A husband spends it to him, the one who is joined here for a pianist Nicolai Krügel. Again some actions are excellent, is all a lovely plus that these often have neglected appearances of Offenbach the art is to give such fine actions.
Ossia An excellent disk , everything roughly is faultless, all some musicians are in shape well, a register is glorious, calm hardly would think them alive register, and some notes of booklet are exemplary. This focus is the new adventure for a RLPO, has not been is taking on of where 'RLPO Alive' to the left was, but in this evidence will be with is mad about that it looks forward to future emissions!

Petrenko And a RLPO has done the glorious work with a Shostakovich symphonies in a past six years. This and a leading emission of a 14th Symphony is any exception to an excellent level during a cycle. 13 And 14 it go it perhaps better with a more presaging his of Russian singers, but still thinks these are fantastic. A quality of register is glass clears throughout. One touching is weighty, angular, intense and precise like appearances, in that listened quell'another in a cycle. Vasily Petrenko Has helped partorisca transform a RLPO to the orchestra of world-wide class. I expect that it remains with them partorisca years partorisca come and I look forward to partorisca listen his next CD.

May in a commentary of principle that a Thirteenth symphony marked the fascinating conclusion to a glorious Shostakovich cycle.

On listening to one the ones of symphony an intense that feels that has an admirable resonance among some verses of Yevgeni Yeftushenko and a music of Shostakovich. A full complete characteristic of a composer is showed in this splendid rendition: melody and venom in equal measure, sardonic sentences, pensive and shady ways, irony, dark feelings, a drudgery of Russian women. One preceding notwithstanding, a sense to give support of nobility and dignity permeates a symphony.

A RLPO there is rid the a lot of fulfilled rendition, Naxos touch it crystalline while Petrenko is directing was at all less than stellar.

Personally, there is enjoyed so much a soloist of basses and heart although easily I admit that I have not had a profit of comparison with the Russian heart.
5 / 5
They are not an expert but partorisca me this complete register the cycle the excellent plus of symphonies. I recognise that students of Shostakovich can have one odd quibble roughly some of some actions but partorisca me can estimate this like excellent and the majority of serious abordable. A last, Babi Yar, is like this as well as I embezzle. Glorious.
4 / 5
I want to Shostakovich and think that Vasily Petrenko is one of some more utmost interpreters of this genial composer. While all Shostakovich the symphonies are very emotional, Babi Yar will take you on a flange. It is not the music will listen to still like - will listen his to KNOW.

BTW Amazon, A chance has suffered harm...

Like this here it is - a culmination of Petrenko glorious cycle of Shostakovich symphonies. It wins it attribute it five stars but he fails partorisca match until a Barshai version (also in price of estimativa) in a respect of entity: a heart of the voices of the men is simply very quite dark in tone. So only the genuine Russian heart can do justice to a choral part - an English tone, while quite pleasant, touches so only too genteel and lack of a earthiness a text requires. In the each one another respects ossia the disk Naxos can be proud of. An orchestral touching is in the first place-tax and one registering admirable. But I will return to Barshai to be for real moved for this work, or undermine my old Kondrashin register of a prime minister perfomance. This in spite of, for orchestral detail and a soloist of excellent bass (often touching quite light in yours), Petrenko the version has a lot of to offer.

This subject of one of Shostakovich the majority of of entity and trenchant the works amenas to an end the successful cycle of his symphonies that like this far there is garnered two prizes of magazines of specialists of classical music. Again, Naxos has resupplied the clear sound, clinical that capture a delicacy of Shostakovich calmer interludes like a passage of Franco of Anne in a first movement, as well as a ferocity of a music that describes a massacre of Jews in Babi Yar, and his anger that Russian women those who had done so much of a backbreaking laws to create a Soviet Union was forced now the row for long periods to buy lunches ('in a Negotiated).

Further of his excellent notes of Richard Whitehouse, Naxos has resupplied it transliteration of some Russian words-essential to help an auditor that follows music-more the good English translation. For this require to comment so only in an action. A soloist, less inky voiced perhaps, but singing with perfect intonation, is exceptional. Reinforced by his Huddersfield mates, a RLPO the men rid a text with the clarity and way that perhaps can suggest some extra coaching of a manager. Like this never, a contributo orchestral excellent: the alone of violin of a leader in' humour', one small-edged fortísimo the passages in that a composer expresses his outrage, some anxious flutes that reflects has has scared people when a swipe is coming to a door; and in a last movement ,the accuracy of a fugato section, with an alone of clarinet of the bass, and fine consoling reflected of a celesta in the pages of closes of a symphony.

First first things. It has given this brilliantly and the attentively wrapped splendour to one of mine nephews. I do not listen it reason was Day navideño and all the classes of music have touched, for like this, can not comment in the quality of his of a CD.

Another that that, is rid mine to present in my grandson a lot for advanced of Day before navideña, has left so only for Day navideño!

Only having to that go for 4.5 to 5 products of Estrella. A never can be sure of a quality except a QUALITY to CLASH MAIN INDICATOR, generally. Has not dipping never my bad feet in this bookmark!

For all this, and not listening the alone note of music, this product deserves is indication of Five Stars , EXTREMELY.

A lot of all has involved, and HAPPY And NEW YEAR PRÓSPERO!

With a recent hounding out of Liverpool Hebrew MP - he - in 2019, is both ironic and that returns that this deeply emotional symphony castigating and decrying anti-semitism is touched fantastically for Liverpool the own force. It can not be one the majority 'Russian' of actions and a Huddersfield the heart is not to be quite the party to say some forces of Fly in Kondrashin register but some bass Alexander Vinogradov is the upper tax and a heart sing with emotion and passion.
Two no-Jews, Shostakovich and Yevtushenko stood up the risks adds to them and decried Soviet anti-semitism. A lot a lot-Jews in United Kingdom there is rallied to a support of a small Hebrew community in this wonderful country and this symphony is the memory that there is always good people those who will struggle an older aversion in a world. Emotional!

Ossia The action adds , the very good register, at all bad with that. There is a lot other versions and many say ‘the Kondrashin is a better, and a fast plus' but concealed is not true for a register. I can not give the support concealed. A more than satisfies for me in general is a BIS SACD with Wigglesworth and a Dutch Radio Orchestra and Corazón; it is picture of his glorious east and a Dutch heart has the bite adds. A drawback of Petrenko the reading is a really too polite Englishness of a heart. Some men sing brilliant but too polite, the lack of assault and bite, vowels and odd sounds, a lot by means of a nose, his' not relieving to sing Russian I am sure but compare this with each Russian and calm heart will know that I bad. Disappointing. It is it likes flange of Sutherland of Joan French – Joan sad…

Manager Vasily Petrenko and a Real Liverpool Philharmonic the heart and The Orchestra conclude his cycle of one 15 Shostakovich symphonies with this register of a No. Of Symphony 13, 'Babi Yar' composed in 1962. This new register already has received the critic acclaims, as has a whole cycle.

'Babi Yar' Is programmatic to symphony that directs roughly moments plus a lot dark of a 20th century. Shostakovich Planned at the beginning to dip so only the alone poem for a Russian poet Yeugeny Yevtushenko but gradually has developed his project to dip five Yevtushenko poems in these macizos symphony of five movements, valued for big orchestra, bass, and the heart that consists only men. Fly-born bass Alexander Vinogradov sings an alone along and demanding run while some men of a Huddersfield Choral Society and a Real Liverpool Philharmonic the heart combines to form a heart.

'Babi Yar' Is the diverse and difficult work emotionally and musically. A function of the advantage generally belongs to a soloist of basses with a heart that comment to or developing his words. A part requires the vocal and expressive row big, of moments of tragedy, anger, irony, to the suggestion of peace. A heart often sings in those looks to be the unison while also expressing it breadth of feelings. An orchestral writing is varied. Each one that like this of some five movements has the substantial sections in that an orchestra extracted so only dipping a character that of the that follows or commenting his. An orchestral accompaniment to an only and the heart also is subtiles and diverse. Some rows of orchestral textures of dense, doing use of an integer near that comprises low series, tuba, plans, percussion, bells, celesta, and more the sections for small chamber-like this of the groups of instruments.

A first movement and the poem of title is based to a Nazi murder of on 30,000 Jews in two days in Ucraina for herding his to the ravine where has been shot in next row. A poem and a music develop to portray and condemn a dominant discharge of Russian anti-Semitism also. A music begins with the slow ominous part and increases in his 15 period of minute the music of deep passion, sorrow and anger. It is the highly emotional, effective musical treatment of a unspeakable chance.

A rest four movements are communism direct to a large extent of interior of the abuses in an USSR. A prank according to movement hows of Humour in his music and text an use of irony to deflate a pretensions of the totalitarian state. A rest three movements, which follow an another without pause, describes a plight of Soviet women those who expect in of the long lines in the commissary only to be deceived and some fears of paralización, deportation, or died in a world of Russia. A final movement, titled 'a career', is summation of a symphony. It suggests that with value and devotion to a truth, the character can spend on and alive with the front in big. A work comes to the soft, fantastically ethereal near.

A flange, touching and that directs of a symphony is ardent and convincing. Vinogradov Captures of flange they a lot of ways of a poetry while Petrenko amena vision and direction to this big bookmark, diverse. A complete heart a soloist, as it have to that and does well with a low-voiced, moody Russian character of a work. Some diverse orchestral sounds and the generally come texture by means of well. There is a lot of exceptional register of one 'Babi Yar'. This new CD is an excellent election to take to know a work. This Shostakovich the cycle is a second to be recorded in Naxos, that follows a cycle sooner with a Czecho-Slovakian Orchestra of the Radio symphony directed for Ladislav Slovakian.

Richard Whitehouses' liner the notes to a CD comprises an excellent overview of a Shostakovich symphonies together with the musical analysis well of one 'Babi Yar.' Texts and translations of Yevtushenko' the poems are resupplied. A register has been done in September 2013 to Liverpool Philharmonic Room. Naxos Amiably resupplied me with the copy of description of this CD.

Ossia arguably an action has registered more end of this symphony. A balance that can be tad afterwards for some flavours, and some engineers have struggled with some of a weightier climax, but ossia all outweighed for a marvellously committed flange of Artur Eisen and a flange adds of a heart. Kondrashin, Probably Shostakovich interprets more final, this a unmissable extracted. It snap it On before finally it disappears for ever!

Are not an expert but for me this complete register the cycle the excellent plus of symphonies. I recognise that students of Shostakovich can have one odd quibble roughly some of some actions but for me can estimate this like excellent and the majority of serious abordable. A last, Babi Yar, is like this as well as I embezzle. Glorious.

I amour Shostakovich and think that Vasily Petrenko is one of some more utmost interpreters of this genial composer. While all Shostakovich the symphonies are very emotional, Babi Yar will take you on a flange. It is not the music will listen to to like - will listen his to KNOW.

2019 it went it the hectic one in of the terms of life in general and my musical life especially, a be of undoubted underlined point that answers all 4 evenings of a Cycle of product of final Coverage for Robert LePage and fluently direct for Philippe Giordania (edges of Arm) with the for real exceptional mould (ANY ONE links feeble!) In a Praise in New York in May.
Less than period for like this memorable was one all Strauss marks with a BRSO under Jansons (4 Last Songs/Damrau and Ein Heldenleben) and the Rachmaninov 3 (Lugansky) and Sibelius 5 with Oslo Philharmonic low Vasily Petrenko.
2 Of one on protagonists, Oslo Phil and Jansons, is combined in this late emission of the alive action of Oslo Koncerthus in 2001 when this combination of artists was in his the majority of potent.
Is the timely memory of a wonderful art of this pairing the time when there it is worry in a health of a manager the one who there is annulled the majority of his commitments of state from now on. I am joined to remark that it looked frail in February, although it has been transformed when in a podium.
Is not explained reason Simax has seated in this register for like this long, as they have released some registers of Mahler A, Seven and New in 2003 and 2009 –and wondrous well is also!-But we have to that be appreciated that is surfaced he of his longitude slumber in last.
Ossia A third 3rd , as to speak, with registers for a RCO and BRSO of 2010 (he BRSO the register was released so only like the subject of byline, how was one 2nd but like this has looked now in a phase opened a 3rd would owe that follow. It is available of trafficante for the moment of specialist).
A lot prefers a BRSO version to a RCO- is more energised although a SACD his of a RCO is to prevails them to me am surprised to find that it concealed in mine dress this earlier action again released surpasses them both.
Technically a register-again mastered –belies his age and is rich, atmospheric and a lot detailed (too like this in of the odd points-more after) with a request of the Chinese gong for Mahler has taken like this never first, and adding to a mysterious and dark weight of some inaugural passages.
An orchestra has your burnished dark in general, with glorious brass and the real sheen the some upper series, bite the low plus. Oslo Jansons has favoured a modern or orchestral setting American with has concentrated the violins to a manager remain and cellos, rape and down bend to his right while with a BRSO at least the violins are places antiphonally in a “ German” setting. These results in the a lot of clearly clear-cut exposure and detailed of a cello leaves in this register, which is no what bad in spite of my preference partorisca a classical setting of has has divided violins.
A timings is a lot looked partorisca each movement among Oslo and Munich-less than the difference of small each one that like this-but an action of Oslo is more shaped, with a manager so only that resists behind with thin stolen in a lot of occasions in of the calmest sections, but even more energetic in time.
An inaugural movement begins with the magnitude declared and the mystery combined-I has alluded already a prominence of a gong-then leave to Jump with the sure air. Richard Strauss has described a tumultuous centrical section “as if some masses, again released of one hard labour load, rushed headlong to relish an entertainment of the fair in the holidays”-and Jansons embraces this concept with alacrity. In another favourite version, Maazel with a VPO maintains the stolid, rigid time and extracted this like the parody of hammer in an earth of parade of an opposite barracks that Mahler has lived like the boy and whose ran and that the bugle calls like this influenced his music-but a marvel of music adds is which well can do differs interpretations, and Jansons propels the he maelstrom in his reading before we surface to a light of a tail with his enormous emission of positive energy.
A second movement is bucolic and quirky for turns, with a lyrical the only extraordinary passages. One 3rd movement begins chirpily and Jansons a lot overdo a nostalgia of some airs of countries and dance it offstage horn of the estaca is not far quite offstage partorisca to mine him liking-an alike situation persists with a BRSO in a Jansons and Haitink readings-but is undeniably fantastically touched and one the final duet with French Horn would spend tears to some eyes of an ogre.
Some finals of movement with some glorious of the energy generated for a Liszt quotation with his swirling harp glissandi fantastically has taken partorisca direct to the raucous final.
Changing to some second leaves of disk partorisca the transmission of way likes to presage text of Also Sprach Zarathustra adapt of mortality. This extraordinary example of Lieder has been very do fault in the disk for one likes of Jessye Norman, Agnes Baltsa, Waltraud Meier, Nathalie Stutzmann and Christa Ludwig partorisca appoint but the little, but the my ears Jadwiga Rappé in a underrated Heinz Rögner the register to date has taken some honours, how is a praise a big plus that can resupply to declare that it finds Randi Stene partorisca be quite his the same, possibly still upper in expression.
When partnered With a heart of the boys in a 5th movement is any less impressive, and a “bim-bams “ is a lot effective with a resonant heart as in a gallery of the cathedral-an offset of lovely effect for one increasingly menacing percussion (this gong again!) First of the peaceful reconciliation in Heaven.
An end is half paced-and so only absolutely beautiful, moving and exquisitely has touched throughout. A bass drum/timps is very taken in some final bars (I still does not know reason DG does not modify in a missing percussion –has not gone there a day-in an end of Abbado/VPO. It is the studio registering after all!)- And we remain refreshed after such the travesía long.
More has mentioned early that a register is partorisca touch also detailed in time, and this will be a subject partorisca some. Jansons Is not habitually he groaner in of the registers-certainly any in one joins of Bernstein or Hake of Ladies Davis-but in some points in this passion of register wins and the vowel obligato is everything too obvious. Ossia Particularly intruder in an end where takes positively has spent is gone in a prime minister big brass infused climax- but these interjections are pocolas and brief and ossia the experience jointly live after all. He this detract sufficiently to warrant deduction of the star?-Any to my ears how is to 6 action partorisca star in all the chance (sad!).
A recent quite bondadoso but very limited building the description of Library on BBC R3 narrowed a field to 4 registers and has given one nods to Abbado VPO like me first election. Any one necessarily agreement but Is a lot well in spite of some absentee personnel in an end (a mix partorisca plan-up!).
A lot admires a Sinopoli/SWR register in Weitblick but is difficult to obtain and a lot expensive, Maazel with a VPO the one who offers the monumental reading with one the majority of extraordinary 3rd movement never, Goes of the one who crisper less overtly the surprise of paid of dividends of Romantic approximation, Heinz Rögner that surprised and delights, some recent Haitink/BRSO which is so only like this beautiful and Manfred Honeck with a Pittsburgh Symphony (the American VPO) glorious in the register adds is all the favourites . It will be necessary revere a DG Bernstein in spite of a dubious yours of serious, shrill brass and eccentric final (any partorisca mention a groan)-and is the experience partorisca oblige .
That is develops is that we are partorisca spoil partorisca election! So much, this new emission joins some rows of one much more utmost?-The majority of emphatically and with a recent emission of a BRSO Shostakovich 10 this confirmation that Simon Rattle has said in the frank interview that “ Mariss is a More adds them of us everything.”
The praise adds, very deserved and more than showed in this stunning register. 5 Stars.
Stewart Crowe.
Sadly, A day on when I have received my copy of one 10 SACD dipped of Jansons BRSO registers to supplement my CD versions have come some sad informative of some Masters succumbing the illness of heart that has had plagued lucido of then 1996.

The description of Stewart has read Crowe and buy this register! These Simax emissions of Jansons' Mahler is exited of stock quite quickly (1,9 and 7 is hard to find ...And one 7 is particularly glorious) as it snaps this on while it still can partorisca the wise prize. I have it that has not listened never one 1st movement touches this mysterious/exciting/ there there is still an hour of glories still partorisca come!
