65, worth reviving to compete with the numerous studio versions of the work? This release reissues a performance by the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Gennady Rozhdestvensky from London's Royal Festival Hall. Instead, what you get here is a prime example of how Shostakovich in Russian hands exceeds the vast majority of what comes from Western conductors.

Gennady Rozhdestvensky conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra in this live 1983 concert recording from Royal Festival Hall. Rozhdestvensky established his credentials as a Shostakovich conductor from 1955 when he deputised for Samuil Samosud in an early performance of Symphony No. This is a performance which is clearly informed from the conductor’s experience of living under Stalinist represssions. Rozhdestvensky was in Shostakovich’s circle and is a respected authority on the composer. He gave the first performance of Symphony No. 10 outside the USSR at the 1962 Edinburgh Festival
