DMITRI SHOSTAKOVICH - PIANO CONCERTOS 1-2 - MARC-ANDRÉ HAMELIN (Piano) - ANDREW LITTON (Conductor) - BBC SCOTTISH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA - 034571174259 - HYPERION CDA67425

Hamelin and Litton have scored a perfect 10 with these well paced accounts of the Shostakovich concertos. Substance, sparkle, beauty, wit, sense of overall structure, everything is present in their interpretation. Add to that demonstration class sonics and you have a winner on all counts.
