Description

Original World Premiere Recordings
“The Chamber symphonies come from the last decade of his life, the First for string orchestra, from the same year as the 18th symphony….it is pastoral in character, closer in feeling to a divertimento or sinfonietta…The Fourth….unremitting as late Shostakovich, and strongly valedictory in feeling. A haunting piece, music of real substance.” (Penguin Guide 3 stars)
