This 2011 compilation covers 20 years of live recordings made by conductor Yevgeny Mravinsky and the then-named Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra for Erato. His interpretations of Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky were highly regarded, so it's not surprising that several of their symphonies are here.
Mravinsky Conducts the Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra Audio CD. Ludwig van Beethoven. Shostakovich afficionados view recordings by Mravinsky as being in a class of their own given his role in establishing the interpretations in the Soviet Union. Unfortunately these recordings are mainly obscure and difficult to locate (see the dschjournal online for information). This recording is from Mravinsky's last years - April 4th, 1984, four years before his death. The live recording from the Leningrad Philharmonic Large Hall is interrupted frequently, though, by loud coughing. The other reason is that I have heard a more powerful performance, for which I reserve my 5th star.
But members of the Leningrad Philharmonic's reserve orchestra and the Leningrad Radio Orchestra were left behind in the siege of Leningrad, so it fell to Karl Eliasberg to conduct the surviving musicians in the Leningrad premiere of the Symphony N. "Leningrad" by Shostakovich. Legend has it that at the first performance of Shostakovich's Symphony No. 5, during the applause immediately after the performance, Mravinsky took the score in his hand and waved it above his head. His issued recordings from after 1961 were taken from live concerts. His final recording was from an April 1984 live performance of Shostakovich's Symphony No. 12. Mravinsky first went on tour abroad in 1946, including performances in Finland and in Czechoslovakia (at the Prague Spring Festival). Recordings reveal Mravinsky to have an extraordinary technical control over the orchestra, especially over dynamics.
Yevgeny Mravinsky made these recordings with the Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra for DGG whilst on a tour of western Europe in the autumn of 1960 in sessions which took place in London (Symphony No. 4) and Vienna (Symphonies 5 & 6.

The musicians will be following the footsteps of members of the legendary Count Basie Big Band, the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, Nelson Riddle and Gordon Jenkins.
