Gustavo Dudamel conducts Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 12

It is rare to experience such a concentration of percussion instruments as there were in this concert with Gustavo Dudamel. In Sofia Gubaidulina’s Glorious Percussion, no less than five percussionists demonstrate the multifaceted sounds and effects their intruments can produce. Dmitri Shostakovich’s 12th Symphony is no less energetic – for the composer an unusually enthusiastic work which was played here by the Berliner Philharmoniker for the very first time.
