On demand: Shostakovich's Symphony no.15

GSOplayRecorded at Gothenburg Concert Hall: Stora Salen, Gothenburg, Sweden

A longed-for challenge for Santtu-Matias Rouvali – chief conductor of Gothenburg Symphony, who is a great admirer of Shostakovich.

In the 15th symphony, with its quotes from Rossini and Bartók, Shostakovich makes fun of the music itself while still being deadly serious. There are also very emotional parts in deep hues, from individual string instruments to powerful brass.

Filmed in November 2018.
