Shostakovich: Symphony No. 4 in C minor, Op. 43


Orchestre National De Belgique, Yuri Simonov

The story of Shostakovich' Fourth Symphony stands as one of the darkest chapters in the cultural history of Stalinism; there was a lapse of twenty-five years between its completion and its belated first performance. In 1935, Shostakovich was a happy and successful young composer, at the peak of his creative powers. He then planned a new symphony he wanted to be greater and deeper than any previous one he had written; choosing a colossal scoring, he conceived a one hour-long triptych in his boldest and most revolutionary idiom. On 28th January 1936 was published the infamous article Chaos instead of music which condemned in the most violent terms the Opera Lady Macbeth de Mtzensk of the Russian composer; for many month, Shostakovich feared for his life but went on working on his symphony. It was only the Khrushchevian "thaw" that made the first performance of this Fourth Symphony at last possible on the 30th December 1961 at the Moscow Philharmonic.

“If you want to get to know the less famous of Shostakovich's symphonies - and you should - then this is an excellent first port of call. Barshai and the WDR Orchestra bring out the full range of emotions and moods, from sardonic wit to gut-wrenching despair via fatalistic resignation and revolutionary fervour.” David Smith, Presto Classical, May 2014
