Symphony no.7 in C major, op.60 'Leningrad'


Mariinsky Orchestra


Valery Gergiev


Valery Gergiev continues his Shostakovich symphony cycle with an emotionally-charged performance of the Seventh Symphony. Shostakovich dedicated his Symphony no.7 to the defiance shown by the citizens of Leningrad in the face of Nazi totalitarianism. Despite the widespread reassessment that has since taken place regarding the inspirations for his symphonies, the ĎLeningradí symphony remains a highly potent symbol for the residents of modern-day St Petersburg.

Previous releases in Gergievís Shostakovich cycle have included Symphonies Nos 1 & 15, 2 & 11 and 3 & 10. Between them they have received two Grammy Award nominations, as well as Chocs from Classica (France) and Editorís Choices from Gramophone.
