Sudden Thaw
The political thaw of the Khrushchev era was short-lived,
but Dmitry Shostakovich took advantage of this opening to
present his view of the first Russian revolution. The events
of 9 January 1905 stand at the center of his Symphony No.
11, recorded here in a dazzling performance by the
Beethoven Orchestra of Bonn under the conductor Roman
Kofman on Vol. 9 of MDG’s complete recording of
Shostakovich’s Symphonies.
Unique Dramaturgy
Almost sixty-five minutes of absolutely breathtaking
music! The four movements full of programmatic
allusions and deliberate associations continue without a
break. The composer constructs a system full of
leitmotifs and with great skill links his themes to
quotations from well-known revolutionary songs to form a
unique dramaturgy.
Fresh Interpretations
“What is certainly the most interesting aspect of
Roman Kofman’s interpretations: he approaches the
works without reservations, free of all ballast, as
genuine musical events of the highest rank. And so
one can actually hear the works in a new way.
Unspoiled. As pure music” (Pizzicato).
