The Orquesta Sinfónica de Castilla y León
and Cadaqués Orchestra
, conducted by Gianandrea Noseda,
joined musical forces during the Ibermúsica
season for a performance of Dimitri Shostakovich'
s Symphony No. 4 in D minor. The performance, lauded by public and critics alike, is now available on CD
from Tritó recorded at the Centro Cultural Miguel Delibes in Valladolid
shortly before its inauguration last year. This symphony, one the Russian composer's most important works, reflects in its passages the convulsive period of Stalinist Russia in 1936 and make the piece, in the words of Luis Suñén
"protean, uncommonly moving, in which the life of a man appears utterly bared. This an extraordinary example of how true it is that music speaks for itself ." A rendition that balances the entire range of emotional elements in the work, from triumph to despair, outstanding both for the work of the Italian conductor and the teamwork of the two orchestras, which after having collaborated on previous occasions, record here together for the first time.
