Shostakovich: Symphony No 10

The centenary of Russian composer Dimitri Shostakovich’s birth took second place to Mozart’s 250th anniversary in 2006. Yet it is the music of Shostakovich that speaks so potently for the troubled 20th century … Melba[’s] recording of Shostakovich’s Symphony No.10 with the Australian Youth Orchestra conducted by Alexander Anissimov …[has] a keen exploratory edge so worthy of this 20th century master.
