Shostakovich Symphonies among “Recordings of the Year” Five Times

The feuilleton of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung has once again published its advice for undecided record-buyers under the motto “Recordings of the Year” in its issue of 2 December. Selected specialist journalists submitted their personal recommendations here. Among the two dozen journalists, there were five authors who named, in their exacting selection, the Complete Recording of the 15 Shostakovich Symphonies performed by the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra under Mariss Jansons.

The CD:

Dmitri Shostakovich: Symphonies Nos. 1-15. Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, cond. Mariss Jansons. 10 CDs. EMI 365 300
