Listen Now: The Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra Performs Shostakovich

Missed last night's audio broadcast of the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra performing Shostakovich's Symphony No. 7, "Leningrad," or just want to hear it again? Listen to the full performance below.

Shostakovich’s “Leningrad” Symphony is a stirring tribute to his native city and its citizens who endured a devastating 900-day siege during World War II. Although Shostakovich never assigned a program to his massively scored symphony, it certainly conjures visions of war, approaching invaders, hope, and victory with a cinematic sensibility. Mariss Jansons, a protégé of Yevgeny Mravinsky (Shostakovich’s favorite conductor) conducts the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra in one of the most riveting and deeply moving works of the 20th century.
