Shostakovich - Symphony no. 10 - Constantin Silvestri



The date is not indicated, but certainly the recording can be placed in the middle 50s, when Silvestri was Principal Conductor of the Romanian National Radio Symphony Orchestra (1953–1958); then he left his country...

So, we're talking about one of the first recordings ever made of this DSCH masterwork (his best symphonic achievement, IMHO).

As "fill up" I've included a 1953 Supraphon recording of the Symphony no. 27 by F.J. Haydn with the Prague Symphony Orchestra (F.O.K.).

Thanks, Guido. Silvestri is always interesting. These are unusual items.

Hi dear Buster!
Yesss, I totally agree with you.

I like particularly his live Manfred on BBC Legends and his other Tchaikovsky recordings...

BTW,
some more Silvestri upcoming ;)

One of the greatest DSCH 10 recordings I've heard! Silvestri was a thoughtful, intelligent, and passionate conductor.

Always interesting.

His LIVE recording of Tchaikovsky's Manfred with Philadelphia Orchestra is one of my favorite recordings.

Thank you very much for posting this gem!

The 10 certainly is impressive indeed. What intensity. And what a contrast with the Haydn.
