Deutsche Grammophon continues the widely acclaimed, Grammy winning Shostakovich Symphony cycle with Music Director Andris Nelsons and the Boston Symphony Orchestra with the release on 6 July, 2018 of a disc containing the Symphony No 4 and the Symphony no 11, subtitled The year 1905
Andris Nelsons is the Music Director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and new Gewandhauskapellmeister of the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig. Leading a pioneering alliance between these two esteemed institutions, he is recognised as one of the most exciting and innovative conductors on the international scene today.
After the “scandalously successful” (Sunday Times) Symphony No. 10 in 2015 and “the sheer expressive beauty” (Gramophone Magazine) of Symphonies Nos. 5, 8, 9 from 2016 Andris Nelsons and his Bostonians turn their attention to the extrovert fourth and dramatic eleventh symphonies, both recorded live for the third instalment of this long-term collaboration of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
The goal is a complete Shostakovich cycle on Deutsche Grammophon with the Boston Symphony Orchestra
