Bernard Haitink conducts Schubert and Shostakovich

Dmitri Shostakovich’s last symphony is a masterpiece of ambiguity. Through his use of quotations from his own compositions and from works by Wagner and Rossini, he combines an autobiographical record with a walk through the history of music. Bernard Haitink conducted the work in May 2015 with, to quote the press, “unsurpassable precision”. Also on the programme: Franz Schubert’s Fifth Symphony.
