Tugan Sokhiev with Shostakovich and Liszt

Dmitri Shostakovich was an admirer of Gustav Mahler. That is reflected in his Fourth Symphony, which recalls Mahler’s musical idiom with its dance and march motifs and its inner turmoil. At the same time, Shostakovich grapples with Stalin’s dictatorship. Tugan Sokhiev pairs the Fourth Symphony with Franz Liszt’s Second Piano Concerto, a work full of expressive intensity. Alexandre Kantorow makes his debut as soloist with the Philharmoniker.
