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 instalment, Symphonies Nos 5 & 1, out now.
