Review By Phillip Scott,Fanfare,November 2014

the first and last of Shostakovich’s symphonies provide a fascinating juxtaposition and are perfectly paced under Mark Wigglesworth, a conductor I always admire. © 2014 Fanfare

Review By Blair Sanderson ,,May 2014

Mark Wigglesworth and the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra recorded Dmitry Shostakovich’s Symphony No 1 in F minor and the Symphony No 15 in A major in 2006, and this hybrid SACD captures both studio performances with remarkable depth, vibrant colors, and clarity. This is part of Wigglesworth’s impressive cycle of the symphonies for BIS, and as he approaches its completion, he reaffirms his status as one of the world’s leading interpreters of Shostakovich. © 2014 Read complete review
