Description

With his Russian and Italian blood, Oleg Caetani acquired a worldwide reputation as one of the leading Shostakovich performers. As son of Igor Markevich he studied all the symphonic works of Shostakovich with Kondrashin and orchestration with Shostakovich's favourite pupil, Tischenko. With this live performance on hand, recorded in the auditorium in Milan, he proves to be a specialist of the Shostakovich repertoire.

From classicstoday.com this recording was already recommended as  an "...extraordinary disc ... Simply be swept up by the visceral excitement, brilliance, passion, and urgency of these 'pedal to the metal' performances. ... Listen without prejudice. You'll be amazed."

This DVD-Audio is the first of a complete Shostakovich cycle. The recording utilises the expanded audio capabilities of DVD-Audio in multi-channel surround high resolution 24 bit/ 96 kHz with an impressive, dynamic range and gives to what was previously called “audiophile events” a new definition.

AWARDS (29.11.2004)


Audiophile audition (audaud.com) (24.11.2004)


"Caetani has a fluid yet dramatic style with both works - not nearly as hell-bent as Bernstein in the Fifth, but with the exceptionally enveloping and impactful multichannel sonics the effect is in some ways even stronger"

Pizzicato (D) (17.06.2004)


"Das ist nicht nur Surround. Das ist Shostakovich!"

DSCH Journal (17.06.2004)


"Sonically impressive, with wide soundstage and clear detail"
