The husband-and-wife duo of Gennady Rozhdestvensky and Viktoria Postnikova return with two great masterpieces from Shostakovich. The Leningrad Symphony– in reality a veiled outcry by the composer against all forms of fascism – stood in its time as a musical symbol of resistance to and condemnation of the Nazi regime. One of Shostakovich’s most delightfully glib works, the First Piano Concerto also features a substantial part for solo trumpet.
