Gianandrea Noseda's Shostakovich Cycle

 

‘A cycle of symphonies gives the complete picture. Shostakovich started at a very early age with the First Symphony, and finished just a few years before he died with Symphony No 15, so he covered half a century. It’s storytelling of his life, but also of what was going on in the world in the 20th century.' - Gianandrea Noseda

Our Principal Guest Conductor has set out on a mission to explore the symphonic music of Dmitri Shostakovich, recording them for the Orchestra's label LSO Live. Discover the latest installment, the composer's monumental Fourth Symphony, available to stream and on CD and download from 4 October.
