SHOSTAKOVICH, D.: Violin Concerto No. 1 / TCHAIKOVSKY, P.I.: Symphony No. 5 (Skride, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, A. Nelsons) (NTSC) ACC-20478
SHOSTAKOVICH, D.: Violin Concerto No. 1 / TCHAIKOVSKY, P.I.: Symphony No. 5 (Skride, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, A. Nelsons) (Blu-ray, Full-HD) ACC-10478

Andris Nelsons has been Music Director of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra since 2018, a busy man indeed as he also holds that position with the Boston Symphony. This new release is a concert recorded May 17/18, 2019. The concert begins with a performance of Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1 featuring the brilliant Latvian Baiba Skride (b. 1981) who is at the beginning of what promises to be a spectacular career. © 2020 ClassicalCDReview.com Read complete review

SHOSTAKOVICH, D.: Violin Concerto No. 1 / TCHAIKOVSKY, P.I.: Symphony No. 5 (Skride, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, A. Nelsons) (NTSC) ACC-20478
SHOSTAKOVICH, D.: Violin Concerto No. 1 / TCHAIKOVSKY, P.I.: Symphony No. 5 (Skride, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, A. Nelsons) (Blu-ray, Full-HD) ACC-10478

Under the direction of her compatriot Andris Nelsons, Baiba Skride plays Shostakovich’s First Violin Concerto in an incredibly eloquent and gripping performance. The violinist’s substantial playing, sometimes soft, sometimes powerfully energetic, is having a no less rhetorical and expressive accompaniment from the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra. © 2020 Pizzicato Read complete review
