HD-Vinyls 24/96 (Decca) Dmitri Shostakovich – Symphony No. 14 (Haitink)

front-small-boxsetMany thanks to our friend Trottar
Despite the fact that there are multiple recordings of Shostakovich’s deeply moving Symphony No. 14, this recording is unique in the quality of performance: Bernard Haitink conducts his Concertgebouw Orchestra and elected to use non-Slavic singers Julia Varady and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau who in turn sing the poems in their original languages rather than the Russian translations used in the original premiere. The effect is staggeringly beautiful and if one must choose a single recording of this symphony, this would be the one that captures the essence of Shostakovich’s vision.
