I want Shostakovich

Postby goombaruskirusky » Sun Sep 16, 2007 6:24 pm

Symphony No. 7
I know it's never going to happen unless somehow i rent or buy it. I just want to study it. Over and over again.

You're right about it never going to happen, at least at IMSLP for a long, long time. The 'Leningrad' symphony was written in 1941, premiered in 1942, and first published in 1945, which means it won't be public domain for many, many years in either Canada or the US. In the mean time, I would be happy to recommend one of my favorite recordings of the work done by Leonard Bernstein and the Chicago Symphony packaged with the first symphony in a 2 CD set.

good luck trying to find shostakovich on limewire, it's hard enough trying to find anything classical on there.
