As conductor Gianandrea Noseda and the London Symphony Orchestra continue their journey through Shostakovich’s symphonies with their fifth Stereo and 5 Channel DSD album in the cycle. These releases span the composer’s lifetime. And they are all available from NativeDSD.

On this album, Noseda and the LSO take on one of his biggest creations—the Seventh. Written during the siege of Leningrad in World War II, it is shattering in scale and impact. For Noseda, “you can hear the march of the soldiers, the obsessive repetition, a loop you cannot escape,” in the relentless, pounding rhythms, the struggle towards a fragile victory.

This album, recorded at Barbican Hall in December 2019, is an exhilarating step on the LSO’s journey through Shostakovich’s symphony cycle under the expert leadership of Gianandrea Noseda.

“Certain moments in history gave composers the possibility of saying something deeply personal”, says LSO Principal Guest Conductor Gianandrea Noseda. “And Shostakovich speaks equally to us today”.

MusicWeb International

I was fortunate to be at the concert that was the source of this recording and reviewed it very favourably. Now, score in hand, I can see that one source of its excellence is Noseda’s scrupulous attention to the expression marks.
