Paavo Jarvi and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra Serve Up a Powerful Shostakovich 10 On Their Latest CD
This exciting recording opens with the Shostakovich Symphony No. 10, a work Mr. Järvi and the CSO know well. Following a performance at Carnegie Hall in 2003, The New York Times wrote, “...the blistering performance of Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 10...showed the potential that Mr. Järvi and [the CSO] have, and suggest a powerful chemistry between them....The orchestra played with a transfixing ferocity.” The piece was also featured prominently on a hugely successful CSO tour of Europe in April of 2008 that included sold-out performances in Vienna, Amsterdam and Paris.
