Riccardo Muti – Shostakovich: Symphony No. 13 in B-Flat Minor, Op. 113 Babi Yar (Live) (2020) [Official Digital Download 24bit/96kHz]

Riccardo Muti – Shostakovich: Symphony No. 13 in B-Flat Minor, Op. 113 Babi Yar (Live) (2020)
FLAC (tracks) 24 bit/96 kHz | Time – 01:08:27 minutes | 1,18 GB | Genre: Classical

This is one of Shostakovich’s greatest works. It’s actually a cantata based on five poems by Yevgeny Yevtushenko. Like Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde, the music is linked and the mood of each pieces leads to the next, concluding in a heartbreaking coda. But this work was met with controversy. The poem “Babi Yar,” which starts off the symphony, is based on the Nazi massacre of Jews at Babi Yar, Ukraine, during World War II. The work was banned by the politburo, but for the poetry, not the music.

Berliner Philharmoniker – The 2009 European Concert in Naples 2009 720p WEB-DL AAC2.0 H.264-CHDWEB

In Germany, anyone switching on their television sets on 1 May will be familiar with the many wonderful halls in which the Berliner Philharmoniker has given its annual European Concerts, settings that include the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, the Escorial in Spain, the Château de Versailles, the Mariinsky Theatre in St Petersburg, St Mary’s Basilica in Krakow and the Vasa Museum in Stockholm, to name but a few of these venues. In 2009 the orchestra visited Naples and performed in the recently renovated Teatro di San Carlo, the oldest opera house in Europe that remains in use to this day, its red and gold opulence and magnificence embodying our ideal image of a theatre auditorium.

As such, it was a worthy setting for the Berliner Philharmoniker’s nineteenth European Concert, which once again marked the anniversary of the orchestra’s foundation on 1 May 1882. On the podium was Riccardo Muti, himself a native of Naples. His appearance marked the end of a seventeen-year period of abstinence from the Berliner Philharmoniker. The reunion of orchestra and conductor proved to be a total success, beginning with the opening piece on the programme, the overture to Verdi’s opera La forza del destino, which according to the Berliner Zeitung “drew the audience into its spell with positively addictive force”. The next item on the programme was Giuseppe Martucci’s song cycle La canzone dei ricordi, with which Muti marked the centenary of the death of a composer whose music is now only rarely heard in the concert hall. The brilliant soloist in these melancholically muted atmospheric portraits was Violeta Urmana, a singer with an enviable reputation in Verdi and Wagner.

After the interval came Schubert’s Symphony in C major (“Great”), a work whose “heavenly length” once inspired Robert Schumann. According to the Berliner Morgenpost, Muti conducted it in a way that “went beyond all Romantic insinuations and invested it with a monumental classicism”, while the Tagesspiegel ventured the view that Muti was also making a connection between the work and the Teatro di San Carlo: “This Schubert does indeed sound as if it is coming straight from an Italian opera house. The tutti passages are as massive as marble blocks, the pizzicato writing and rhythmic accompanying figures are as sharp as razor blades, while the woodwind melodies, by contrast, are as heartfelt and beautifully sung as any grand operatic aria.”
