Russia's foremost conductor, Alexander Lazarev, conducts Shostakovich's nationalistic Symphony No. 11, the RSNO's debut on Linn Records.

Download includes - cover art, booklet

'Lazarev wings passion from the RSNO. They play with sweat-drenched ferocity and heart-tugging pathos.' The Times

'Lazarev has earned his place in RSNO history, with performances that tore deep into the harshness and the harrowing irony of some of the 20th century's most enigmatic music.' The Scotsman 

The driving force behind this major new recording is the RSNO's principal conductor, Alexander Lazarev. Having been born and educated in Russia, and witness to some of the concerts given by the composer himself, Lazarev is in a unique position to present these symphonies with empathy and authenticity.

Alexander Lazarev clearly knows his Shostakovich and is absolutely dedicated to the cause of laying out a definitive chronicle of the composer's symphonic development. While giving full vent to the lighter whirlwind movements, the conductor aims to bring a serious and empassioned expression to the complex and sometimes contradictory messages that the composer displays (or perhaps hides) in these works.

This is indeed a symphonist from the midst of the 20th century, displaying all the complexities and contradictions of life, and allowing his art to be approached in a number of different ways. The interpretation is very much in the ear of the listener.
