The late conductor, Kurt Masur, had a long relationship with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, dating back to 1987. This recording, made during his tenure as Principal Conductor (2000-2007), highlights the close relationship between Conductor and Orchestra. This release adds to a growing collection of Shostakovich symphonies on the LPO label. Previous recordings featuring Kurt Masur have been praised for their emphatic style and serious class. The most recent Shostakovich release (LPO-0080: Symphony Nos. 6&14, Vladimir Jurowski) was described by BBC Music Magazine as the most stunning Shostakovich disc I have heard this year.
