The world première of the symphony was held on 5 March in Kuybyshev with the Bolshoi Theatre Orchestra

Shostakovich Symphony No. 7, Leningrad. Exciting young Russian conductor Stanislav Kochanovsky conducts a thrilling symphony dedicated to his home city. Shotakovich began work on his Seventh Symphony days after the Nazi invasion of Russia, and worked on it as the German army laid siege to Leningrad. From the start of the famous ‘Invasion’ march of the first movement, his symphony resonated with audiences across Russia and beyond. Opening quietly with twinkling melodies and his trademark light touch, Prokofiev’s expansive Second Piano Concerto balances lyrical solo piano passages with menacing orchestral moments - brought into particular focus in the dramatic third movement. Further raising the musical stakes, the devilish fourth movement moves through the piano's entire range, building to a monumental final flourish.
