Shostakovich Symphony No. 10 in E minor, Op. 93

Bernard Haitink conductor
London Philharmonic Orchestra
David Nolan leader

Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony was first performed shortly after Stalin’s death in 1953. This was the first of his works to be completed without the restraints of strict Communist artistic control hanging over him. A dark and tragic tone is projected throughout the Symphony, and the distinct contrasts create a dramatic and intense work. Recorded live at the Royal Albert Hall during the 1986 BBC Proms, Bernard Haitink and the London Philharmonic Orchestra give a compelling account of this monumental symphony.
