"Den första symfonins enorma succé gjorde tonåringen Dimitrij Sjostakovitj till Sovjetunionens första internationella stjärna. I den finns idéer som skulle mogna under resten av hans karriär. Genombrottet placerade Sjostakovitj omedelbart i maktens blickfång. Där skulle han stanna. Av honom förväntades både konstnärlig spets - vilket sedan romantiken betytt självständighet - och politisk lojalitet. Förstås gick ekvationen inte ihop. Den hand som födde honom höll honom också hårt kopplad. BIS har på denna skiva samlat de tre första symfonierna, tillkomna mellan 1924 och 1929, då Sjostakovitj ännu var uppburen. Längre fram väntade Stalins missnöje med fjärde symfonin, offentlig degradering och svartlistning av musik som inte passade partiets socialrealistiska krav. Var de orimliga politiska kraven förutsättningen för Sjostakovitjs djupt motstridiga musik, häftigt växlande mellan lyrisk lätthet och egensinnig tonalitet? Dirigenten Mark Wigglesworth antyder det i en välskriven essä i skivans texthäfte. När nu de tre första ges ut näst sist i en skivserie där endast den sista och femtonde symfonin återstår att spela in, har brittiske Wigglesworth etablerat sig som en kännare. På samma gång måttfull och skarp påminner han om vår egen radioorkesters chefsdirigent Daniel Harding, med perfekta tempi och balans i orkestergrupperna."

Netherlands Radio Choir (Symphonies Nos 2 & 3);
Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra / Mark Wigglesworth

This well-filled disc combines the first three symphonies by Dmitri Shostakovich, all written before the composer had reached his twenty-third birthday. The First Symphony was in fact the graduation piece that completed his studies at the Leningrad Conservatory, but to quote Mark Wigglesworth's own liner notes to this disc, 'Shostakovich's trade-mark musical gestures are all immediately obvious. Nervous tension and sarcastic wit, passion and intelligence, contemplation and action, nobility and banality - all expressed with an economy of means that is simultaneously subtle and direct.' The work was an immediate success, and soon gained worldwide recognition through performances by Walter, Toscanini, and Klemperer. 'The Soviet Union had discovered its first international star, and the authorities proclaimed him as an exaltation of the new at the expense of the old.' The two symphonies that followed fared much less well, however, and are still rarely performed in concert. At least nominally, there is a political theme to both works - the Second Symphony was a commission from the State Publishing House to honour the tenth anniversary of the October Revolution, and the Third, with its subtitle 'The First of May', was a celebration of the international Worker's Day. Both works end with choral finales, to texts which proclaim mottos such as 'Labour, joy and song' and 'Revolution, march with a million feet!', but the scores themselves proved too experimental for the taste of the Soviet authorities, and did little to enhance the standing of their composer. This disc is the penultimate in what 'could be the most important Shostakovich cycle of recent times' according to the reviewer on MusicWeb-International. Wigglesworth and his players in the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra have received great acclaim for their performances of the mature symphonies such as the Eighth or Thirteenth, 'Babi Yar', and here offer us the beginnings, works which in Mark Wigglesworth's words 'encapsulate all the musical ideas that were to remain present throughout the composer's life.'
