Symphony No 8

To Shostakovich, the orchestra was a fantastic instrument that could express everything from the most tender poetry to ancient powers that move mountains.

And that’s what the eighth symphony seems to do in its heart-wrenching melancholy and violent charges in a tragic reflection of the darkness of the Second World War.
