Podcast: Vasily Petrenko talks to Edward Seckerson about his Shostakovich recording of Symphony No 10

In 2010 Vasily Petrenko was named Male Artist of the Year at the Classical Brit Awards. His ongoing cycle of the Shostakovich symphonies for Naxos has garnered extraordinary reviews and the latest in the series – the defiant 10th Symphony, regarded by many as the most perfectly balanced of all – represents yet another step forward in this extraordinary symphonic chronicle of Soviet life and times. In this exclusive audio podcast Petrenko talks to Edward Seckerson about the genesis of the cycle in general and the 10th Symphony in particular.
