Shostakovich, Dmitry - Chamber Symphony & Metamorphosen


Lägg till önskelista + 159 kr - Utgången

Both the works on this album came about as a reaction to the horrors of war. Shostakovich visited Dresden in 1960 and much of the city still lay in ruins. His 8th String Quartet dedicated to the victims of fascism, is one of his most powerful and deeply personal works, quoting from earlier compositions, and using the composer’s musical motto D Es C H. The composer wept after the first private performance: his son later suggested that the work was actually meant to be dedicated to the victims of totalitarianism. It was later arranged for string orchestra, with the approval of the composer, by Rudolf Barshai and it is this version, known as the Chamber Symphony, that appears here. Richard Strauss, well into his 80s when the war ended, was crushed by the destruction of the great opera houses and places of learning in Germany, as the Allies defeated the Nazis. 'Metamorphosen' for 23 solo strings is a profound and heartfelt lament for the loss of the Germany he knew as a young man; and the news that the Goethehaus in Dresden had been obliterated was the impetus for this late masterwork. The Baltic Chamber Orchestra is comprised of the principal string players of the St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra. Under their French music director Emmanuel Leducq-Barôme they are one of the finest chamber ensembles in Russia and together they have made several recordings, most recently for Aparté, and concert tours in Europe. Leducq-Barome studied with conductor Mariss Jansons at the Saint-Petersburg Conservatory. In 1997 he concluded his studies there under the legendary pedagogue Ilya Musin, the mentor of several generations of conductors, including Valery Gergiev, Semyon Bychkov and Yuri Temirkanov. Since then he has held the post of principal conductor at the philharmonic orchestras of Kaliningrad and Irkutsk, in Russia.
