It is my favourite of Shostakovich's ballets!

Mine, as well.

Wow, Shosta's Symphony No. 12 is one of my favorite works by him now - it is so driving with so much orchestral beauty! (conducted by Thomas Sanderling - loving this cycle)

That is odd I can't remotely recall that symphony at all.  I should give it a fresh listen.

I like No.12 as well.

I'll have to revisit the 12th as I really used to like it when I was first discovering Shostakovich's symphonies, but I admit that my interest in it has waned comparatively to most of the other symphonies as time has gone by.

You could do that, or you could listen to the slow movement of Miaskovsky's 24th for a refresher. ;)

Okay will do, I've queued up the Svetlanov recording.
