THE REST IS NOISE Leningrad Symphony
Time Out says
City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra under Andris Nelsons performs Dmitry Shostakovich: Symphony No7 in C ('Leningrad').
Written in the Second World War during the gruelling siege of Leningrad, Shostakovich's powerful Symphony No 7 has since transcended the specifics of its conception to become a universal expression of man's survival during times of conflict.
