Gergiev does it againmain
His release of Shostakovich symphonies 4, 5 and 6 from St Petersburg repeats his 2004 Decca set from the same musicians and venue.
Except that it’s less coherent, less well played and recorded, less attractive in every way.
So why did he release it? Is there a political reason?
The set is my Album of the Week on sinfini. Click here.
