Mark Wigglesworth began his cycle of Shostakovich’s symphonies with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, continuing since 2005 on the other side of the English Channel with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra.
Dmitry Shostakovich: Symphony No. 11 in G minor, Op. 103, "The Year 1905"
I. The Palace Square
II. The 9th of January
III. In memoriam
IV. The Tocsin
18th March 2010
“[Wigglesworth] gets playing of great refinement from the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, setting the scene in the opening movement The Palace Square perfectly, but can also conjure up raw brutality in the final movement with tingling vividness when required... the 11th has rarely seemed so cogent.”
