This magnificent 2008 recording of Shostakovich's mighty Seventh Symphony with Yuri Temirkanov and the St. Petersburg Philharmonic is even better than the magnificent 1995 RCA recording with the same performers. The difference between the two is not one of timing, since most of the movements come in at nearly the same length, or of playing, because in both the St. Petersburg musicians perform with almost superhuman strength, and not even interpretation, because Temirkanov is still swinging for the fence and still hitting it out of the ballpark.
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 in Kuybyshev with the Bolshoi Theatre Orchestra

TITLE added to MP3 cart. St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Dmitri Shostakovich & Yuri Temirkanov. I have a timpanist friend who judges all recordings by how well the timpani comes through - he would hate the opening of Yuri Temirkanov's new Shostakovich Seventh, because the bass lines are buried and blurry, including the timpani. It's the only caveat I can think of, because otherwise this is a splendid reading, exceeding my high expectations from Temirkanov's first recording made for RCA/BMG with the same St. Petersburg Phil.
