As Dmitri Shostakovich began his 15th and final symphony, he was already physically ailing, but he was able to summon up all his powers for one last time. Compared to many of his earlier symphonies, the work’s instrumentation is almost reminiscent of chamber music. It possesses traits of a musical journey into his own past.
Against a backdrop of pain and resignation, happiness proves to be illusory. The scherzo has ghostly traits, whereas a theme from the ‘pronouncement of death’ scene from Wagner’s Valkyrie introduces the finale, which, after a sonic explosion, ends with great calmness.
The concert was recorded live in Dresden’s new concert hall. This venue effortlessly assumes its place in the international league of outstanding concert halls, and is a popular meeting place for classical music enthusiasts.
