    Great choice, Haziz.

    Prompted me to go for some Shosty, myself!

    Going to give 9 a listen.

    My current goto cycle is this one.

    My new year's resolution is to buy less new music and listen more to the absolutely STUPID amount of music I already have.

    DSCH 8 - Tatarstan National Symphony Orchestra, Alexander Sladkovsky

    This is going to be a long night!

    Having marvelled at the performance and recording of the 9th in this set, I cannot resist going for the 8th before the night's out!

    Shostakovich's 8th before bed? Well, I guess I can't wish you sweet dreams.

    Shostakovich, Symphony No. 8

    All this Shostakovich talk has spurred me to pull out some Kondrashin. I have two other Shostakovich cycles, but there's something about his conducting that makes everything Shostakovich does interesting.

    I agree, it's excellent. Aimard's has been a favorite, but Driver's slightly mellower approach and warmer piano sound make his version a bit les fatiguing to listen to in long stretches for me.
