Recorded January 18-19, 1995 in the Large Shostakovich Philharmonic Hall, St. Petersburg, Russia.
The Leningrad première of Shostakovich's Symphony No. 7 took place on 9 August 1942 during the Second World War, while the city of Leningrad now St. Petersburg was under siege by Nazi German forces. Dmitri Shostakovich had intended the piece to be premièred by the Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra, but because of the siege, that group was evacuated from the city, as was the composer himself. The world première of the symphony was held on 5 March 1942 in Kuybyshev with the Bolshoi Theatre Orchestra. Album 2010 4 Songs. Rachmaninov: Symphony No. 3, Op. 44 & Symphonic Dances, Op.

Performances and recordings of Shostakovich's wartime Symphony No. 7 Leningrad are rare. Its length makes it difficult to program, and that it is hard for conductors to organize does not make it any easier for audiences to understand. It may seem strange, therefore, that Yuri Temirkanov's performance with the St. Petersburg Philharmonic is perhaps the finest modern performance of this work. Shostakovich: Sym.

There is no denying the power of Shostakovich's seventh when played by an orchestra from the city for which it was written, says Stephen Pritchard. Modern St Petersburg bears few of the scars of the siege that gripped it for 900 days in the second world war, but this symphony lives on as a testament to the starving musicians of the Leningrad Radio Orchestra, who fired it at their besiegers through loudspeakers in an extraordinary act of psychological warfare.
