Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5, Op. 47 - Barber: Adagio for Strings, Op. 11
Die "Pittsburgh Live!"-Serie von Reference Recordings ist seit der ersten Veröffentlichung ein großer Erfolg. Zwei Titel erhielten bislang eine Grammy-Nominierung für die Best Orchestral Performance (Dvo?ák/Jana?ek und Bruckner 4). Mit Shostakovich' 5. Sinfonie und Samuel Barbers Adagio For Strings legen Manfred Honeck und das Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra nun eine weitere audiophile Aufnahme vor.

Der Hybrid-Multikanal-SACD liegt ein ausführliches Booklet bei, in dem Manfred Honeck Einblicke in die Entstehungsgeschichte der Werke gibt und seine Herangehensweise als Dirigent beschreibt. Aufgenommen und gemastert wurde der Titel, der in der FRESH!-Serie erscheint, vom Soundmirror-Team aus Boston.
Wir empfehlen die Verwendung von "L'Art du Son"-CD/DVD-Conditioner für eine nochmalige klangliche Verbesserung.
Reference Recordings proudly presents these two beloved works in definitive interpretations from Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, in superb audiophile sound.
In his fascinating and scholarly music notes, Maestro Honeck gives us great insight into the history of both pieces, and describes how he conducts and interprets each. He reminds us that Joseph Stalin's Soviet government was offended by Shostakovich's previous works. Under threat of arrest or banishment to Siberia, Shostakovich devised a new, less-complex compositional style for the 5th Symphony, still full of irony and double meaning, to appease Stalin and appeal to the common people.
The Adagio of Samuel Barber is his most performed work, and one of the most popular of all 20th Century orchestral works. It is beloved for its beautiful simplicity and emotion. Manfred Honeck describes Barber's 1967 a capella version for mixed choir using the "Agnus Dei" text, and tells us his own interpretation is inspired by this text. He says it is "for me, without a doubt, the key to finding a deeper sense of this piece. Perhaps it is for this reason that the Adagio has enchanted and moved audiences around the world since its very first incarnation and has continued to do so in all subsequent versions born since."
This release is the seventh in the highly acclaimed Pittsburgh Live! series of multi-channel hybrid SACD releases on the FRESH! series from Reference Recordings. Each has received dozens of critical accolades.
The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, known for its artistic excellence for more than 120 years, is credited with a rich history of the world's finest conductors and musicians, and a strong commitment to the Pittsburgh region and its citizens. Austrian conductor Manfred Honeck became music director of the Pittsburgh Symphony in 2008.
With a long and distinguished history of touring both domestically and overseas since 1900, the Pittsburgh Symphony continues to be critically acclaimed as one of the world's greatest orchestras.
