Description

Symphony 13 on CD

Riccardo Muti leads the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, men of the Chicago Symphony Chorus and bass soloist Alexey Tikhomirov in this poignant performance of Shostakovich's Symphony No. 13, Op. 113 (Babi Yar). Recorded live in September 2018, the ensemble shines throughout-from passages requiring the sheer sonic force of the first movement to the indelible moments provided by single instruments, reminding the listener that despite the enormity of it's theme, this is, after all, a symphony of individuals. Muti and musicians expertly navigate the intricacies of the five movements, each set to the poetry of Yevgeny Yevtushenko and expressing themes that were dear to Shostakovich-revolution and war, the individual's role in society, idealism in the face of easy compromise, prejudice and intolerance. Yevtushenko said, "Over people like Shostakovich death has no power. His music will sound as long as humankind exists.... When I wrote 'Babi Yar,' there was no monument there. Now there is a monument."
