Boston Symphony Orchestra Shostakovich Symphonies Nos. 5, 8 & 9
Album stream ,

The Boston Symphony Orchestra has recorded some Shostakovich Symphonies and you should listen now. Why? Read on!

You know, I'm not the expert when it comes to classical music. But Dmitri Dmitrijewitsch Schostakowitsch, who lived from 1906 to 1975 (I know! You thought he's one of the really old guys, right?), is one of the favourite composers that some of YOUR favourite movie composers take their inspiration from. If you lean back and just listen you'll notice lots of motifs and stuff you might know from various movies. Seriously, listen! It will blow your mind here and there! This is really modern stuff!

We have labelled Shostakovich Symphonies Nos. 5, 8 & 9 with our editor's choice badge, which means we totally dig the record. Make sure you listen to it at least once.
