Album Title: Symphony No. 8 (Dallas Symphony Orchestra) Delos 1997 Rating: ***
Prime Artist: Shostakovich (Dmitry Dmitrievich S.)
Orchestra: Dallas Symphony
Conductor: Andrew Litton
.
Review: One of the few 'name' classical CDs I've ever paid full price for. I had been

impressed with Holst' 'Mars - Bringer of War' from the Planet's Suite. This CD

had some inventive cover graphics, and some nice reviews and writeups. I

previewed it, and found it to be very nearly as powerful as the Holst work.



If you're an armchair classics admirer, and you enjoy powerful music, look this

one up and give it a listen.
