Kirill Petrenko describes Dmitri Shostakovich's Eighth Symphony as an "incredible psychological drama". The composer wrote it while his life was in danger during the Second World War: between a perilous existence and Stalinist censorship. The Ninth and Tenth also bear vivid witness to Shostakovich's confrontation with the regime - and his self-assertion. Berliner Philharmoniker Recordings now releases the recordings of Symphonies 8-10 as the orchestra's second major hardcover edition with chief conductor Kirill Petrenko.
