BIS Boss Robert von Bahr: Sometimes the demand for collections is so great that we cannot withstand it. Such is the case with the Shostakovich Symphonies, which have all been recorded, conducted by Mark Wigglesworth, who has made Shostakovich his calling card. These records have been a little like sleepers, hugely enjoyed by the experts, but failing to attract the general public that more has gone for the big names. Now is the time to rectify that, and a Box (here a Bundle), at a very favourable price - and all in SACD format (with added surround, where necessary), might do the trick. This is a complete set, made with all the unique insight that is Mark's, and something at least I am very, very proud of having carried through.
