Shostakovich Under Stalin's Shadow marks the first release in a multi-year recording partnership between Deutsche Grammophon, Andris Nelsons, and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. The recording focuses on works composed during the period of Shostakovich's difficult relationship with Stalin and the Soviet regime. - starting with his fall from favor in the mid-1930s and the composition and highly acclaimed premiere of his Fifth Symphony, and through the premiere of the composer's Tenth Symphony, one of the composer's finest, most characteristic orchestral works, purportedly written as a response to Stalin's death in 1953.  Shostakovich Under Stalin's Shadow features the Passacaglia from Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, the opera that appalled Stalin and propelled Shostakovich out of the dictator's favor, and the acclaimed Symphony No. 10. The album was recorded this past April at Symphony Hall in Boston.
