Spectacular recording of extraordinary quality

This is a spectacular recording of extraordinary quality. Led by the wonderful Valery Gergiev, the Mariinsky orchestra thrives under his direction and interpretation of these two symphonies and release a breath of fresh air into the well-known tenth symphony. An interesting pairing, Shostakovich’s rarely heard third symphony is exciting and unpredictable, while the masterful performance of the tenth is gripping.
