RRC1377 [Bar code 5055031313778]

UK Dealer Price – £2.70

Regis presents Bernstein’s celebrated 1960 recording of Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony at super budget price and the conductor directs the NYPO from the keyboard in Shostakovich’s Second Piano Concerto. Both display Bernstein’s extrovert approach to this repertoire with great effect.

‘The Philips recordings give a vivid close-up of the brilliant orchestral playing; the result is something very exciting indeed. If you want to be knocked over by the symphony, this is the version to get.’(Gramophone)

RRC1378 [Bar code 5055031313785]
