Rostropovich Exceeds Expectations
Sunday, June 12, 2005
In my humble opinion, Mstislav Rostropovich is the ultimate interpreter of Shostakovich, and this recording of the 5th demonstrates that. The recording is astonishing. The SACD format allows you to hear every nuance. The performance is also breathtaking. If you liked Rostropovich's recording with the National Symphony, then you will love this one.
