HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Chandos) Dmitri Shostakovich – Symphonies 1 & 6 (Järvi)

Many thanks to our friend Jean-Luc for the record
Dmitri Shostakovich, living during the harrowing days of the Stalin regime, wrote many of his works carefully, cleverly protesting the inhumanity of life under the cruel dictator. Neeme Järvi’s SNO account on Chandos is with no doubt the most powerful, implacable, shocking and devastating recorded performance ever done. Järvi’s wonderful approach is typical of the trenchant, uncompromising `Shostakovich sound’ that we only find in great Shostakovich conductors as he is. This spectacularly recorded disc from 1985 preserves a completely gripping delivery of the two symphonies. This is one of Jarvi’s most successful discs, even among the considerable number of high quality he made with this orchestra for Chandos. This is a clear example that for sheer involvement and edge of the seat excitement, this combination is hard to match when on this sort of top form.
