HD-Vinyls 24/96 (EMI/Melodiya) Dmitri Shostakovich – Symphony No. 1 & 3 (Kondrashin)

front-small-boxsetMany thanks to our friend Jean-Luc for this
Compared to many of the recordings made today Maestro Kondrashin’s tempi are fast and the recordings (like those from conductors Mravinsky, Svetlanov and Rhodesvetsky) have a visceral feel. More recently, conductors like Valery Gergiev and Mistislav Rostropovich have adopted slower tempi that seek to probe the drama of the music. This approach rewarding but it is interesting to listen to the work of conductors who worked with Shostakovich.
The First Symphony is very well played and exuberant. It certainly is among the best recordings of the symphony.
This Third Symphony is nicely performed, well recorded and played at a fast tempo. This recording ranks alongside Haitinck’s acclaimed reading as one of the best of this symphony.
