Kronos turned me on to Shostakovich and he's been a favorite ever since- thanks for this one.
Yeah, I'm a Shostakovich fan too. Personal favourite is the Chamber Symphony in C Minor, Op. 110a. Check it out if you haven't heard it.
You get x x x for this. Marvellous jam. My favourite composer since my early teens!
If we're in this game - My favourites are - String Quartets - No. 6, 8, 10 and 12, The Jazz Suites, The Bolt, Suite for Variety Orchestra...um... etc. etc.
@abigail.deeks Thank you. xx
The bravest of composers. Well jammed that man.
This is masterful.
Great choice. I know nothing at all about classical music but recently, on a whim, I bought season tickets to see my national symphony orchestra play The Wartime Symphonies by this very man throughout 2015-2016. If they're all as good as this then it was money well-spent!
Mesmerizing! Best videography of an orchestra ever. Wow! The most powerful FU to the recently dead Stalin, and (oh no!) a powerful statement! I watched until the final second, even through five or more minutes of applause
One of my favorite composers
His best symph?
Was not aware of this conductor. He did a brilliant job.
We start with the Double Bass...excellent, Simpson, excellent...
@Axol 5th for me.
