Aug 14, · Dmitry Shostakovich s Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk is unquestionably one of the greatest operas of the 20th century. This new production, filmed at the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona, is part of the new "EMI Classics Opera on DVD" series, which presents first-class productions from the great opera houses of the world/5(8).
(in Russian with subtitles in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Catalan) This dark opera is considered one of the greatest ever written. It was influenced by Stalin’s ruthless dictatorship and the political, cultural and ideological persecution that took place under his rule.
We tend to think of Kyrill Kondrashin as the most “authentic” pioneer of Shostakovich’s long-suppressed Fourth Symphony, except that the recordings of this work by Gennady Rozhdestvensky (Olympia, 5/89, and Russian Disc, 1/94 – both nla) are no less fine.
