Shostakovich loved Shakespeare's Hamlet and King Lear and he composed incidental music for stage productions of both. But the Shakespeare that Shostakovich loved was far more of a twentieth century poltroon than an Elizabethan fop and his incidental music is heavy on the brutal, the banal, and the downright disgusting. Mark Elder is a down and dirty director who conducts Shostakovich's bitter and bilious music with aplomb. The orchestra members are not only virtuosos, they are sleazy and soiled performers who find the awful and the ugly in every note. In context, this is a good thing. The sound was superb in 1994 and it is still superb in 2004.

Shostakovich: Hamlet; King Lear. For the hardcore Shostakovich lover who can't get enough of the composer at his most vicious and vulgar, this 1994 recording by Mark Elder and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra will be just the thing. Shostakovich loved Shakespeare 's Hamlet and King Lear and he composed incidental music for stage productions of both. But that doesn't mean it doesn't work, given the.

Mark Elder Conductor. Dmitri Shostakovich Composer. David Wilson-Johnson (bar). Mark Elder Conductor. Shostakovich Hamlet, Op 32; King Lear, Op 58a. Hamlet. Roughly half of Shostakovich’s music for the extraordinary satirical production of Hamlet in Moscow in 1932 is comparatively well known. The music for Kozintsev’s 1941 staging of King Lear is the obvious coupling, but no less welcome for that, and for completeness we also have the two pieces Kozintsev required to flesh out his 1954 production of Hamlet (which otherwise reused the Lear music!). Performances are never less than effective (though presto movements are somewhat sedate) and recording quality is efficient rather than refined.
