  • Concert reviews

    ‘Sublime & chilling: Noseda and LSO brim with bite.’
    Bachtrack

    ‘The LSO were at the peak of their powers under Gianandrea Noseda.’
    The Guardian

    ‘A work that is programmed with such regularity requires a really intense and engrossing performance to keep it fresh. This was duly delivered.'

Gianandrea Noseda 
London Symphony Orchestra


Gianandrea Noseda and the London Symphony Orchestra launch a cycle of the complete Shostakovich symphonies with one of the 20th Century’s most iconic artistic statements.

Few pieces of classical music have been the subject of so much debate and discussion as the Fifth Symphony of Dmitri Shostakovich. Following the ‘justified criticism’ of his opera Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk it marked a turning point in the composer’s career, after which he balanced an even more precarious position as an artist under Stalin’s brutal regime.
