$ 6.62 $ 16.99

The present disc has indisputable documentary significance. With Soviet bloc tanks newly arrived on the streets of Prague on August 21, 1968, the Shostakovich...risked being seen as 'oppressor's music'. The atmosphere in the Royal Albert Hall was palpably tense...He delivers a compelling interpretation of the Tenth...It is fascinating to revisit the brutal power and timbral specificity of Svetlanov's archetypally Soviet band.
