While not one of Shostakovich's best works, the Symphony #10 has many wonderful passages that illustrate the tumultuous time period from which it came. Herbert von Karajan rendered yet another nuanced and stunning performance from his great orchestra. His admiration of Shostakovich as a composer and a man comes through in the beautiful phrasing and balancing evident in the recording.
