Notes and Editorial Reviews
After the scandalously successful (Sunday Times) SYMPHONY NO. 10 in 2015, the sheer expressive beauty (Gramophone Magazine) of SYMPHONIES NOS. 5, 8, 9 from 2016, and the overbearing vividness (The Guardian) of the most recent SYMPHONIES NOS. 4 & 11, Nelsons and the BSO continue the Grammy-winning cycle with SYMPHONIES NOS. 6 & 7. The symphonies are complemented by two other works by Shostakovich, the Suite from the Incidental Music to King Lear, Op. 58a and the Festive Overture, Op. 96.
