Leningrad Symphony – the horrors of war!

Gothenburg Symphony’s chief conductor Santtu-Matias Rouvali talks about Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 7, the Leningrad Symphony, just before the concert was broadcasted live on March 9, 2023. He describes the symphony as very special and dramatic, with a dynamic that moves between both weak and strong.
“There is hope and beautiful memories in the music. But it’s about the horrors of war”
