This is the best sound I have ever heard for this recording and I have had to CD issues and also have the original Capitol 2 LP set
Wonderful performance and excellent sonics!
I recently purchased "Shostakovich Symphony No.11 ("1905") - Leopold Stokowski / The Houston Symphony Orchestra" on digital format. Not only is the recording of superb quality, but I found the piece itself of great historical and musical value. I definitelyrecommend HDTT and will be buying more music from them in the future.
Stoki's Shostakovich 11
This is one of the great recordings, not only a plausible first choice for this work but one of the greatest Shostakovich symphony recordings generally. The sound from Capitol records was always good, but it sounds better than ever here.
This is a nice example of a nicely recorded and performed music. Have several versions of the symphony 11th but this is way above them in performance and sound quality. Transfer is excellent as usual. Don’t miss this gem from your collection!
