Andris Nelsons: Shostakovich - Under Stalin's Shadow - Symphonies 5, 8, 9 Two-Disc Set (CD)

Boston Symphony Orchestra

$21.98

For their second release on Deutsche Grammophon—following upon their Grammy-winning recording of the Symphony No. 10—Andris Nelsons and the BSO are heard in live performances of Dmitri Shostakovich's popular, pre-war Fifth Symphony, the darkly compelling mid-war Eighth, and the elusive, post-victory Symphony No. 9, plus excerpts from Shostakovich's incidental music for a farcical 1932 Moscow production of "Hamlet."
