Product Information

In this final instalment of their acclaimed Shostakovich cycle, Andris Nelsons and the Boston Symphony Orchestra explore the composer’s shifting identity and political convictions under the Soviet regime, tracing with the four symphonies on this album a 35-year span in his creative and personal evolution: from youthful idealism to mature disillusionment and resignation. The album is out today in all formats.

Also available in Dolby Atmos®
