Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Mark Wigglesworth's Shostakovich Fourth with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra is a mostly lifeless flop. The problem lies primarily with tempo. Wigglesworth goes slow when he should go fast and fast when he should go slow.

The opening is so sedate, you might wonder if your playback equipment is operating correctly or if you've inserted Haitink's Chicago Symphony disc by mistake. The tempo's certainly no Allegretto of quarter-note = 92 beats per minute. Among the first movement's many tempo fluctuations, a crucial one occurs at No. 47, and almost every conductor ignores it. After a two-measure ritardando, the tempo is marked to broaden drastically, from the established quarter-note = 138 bpm to eighth-note = 60. Of the 25 or so CDs of the Fourth I've heard, Wigglesworth is one of the few who comes close to the right tempo (at 13:13 in this recording). But that's because he has been going too slow all along, and so the contrast called for by reducing the pace is lost. Listen to Myung-Whung Chung Shostakovich: Symphony No.4, Oleg Caetani Symphony 4, Valery Gergiev Shostakovich: Symphony: No. 4, Andrey Boreyko Shostakovich: Symphony No. 4 / Suite (of excerpts) from Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, Günther Herbig
