Lisa Xanthopoulou Live and on a New CD
Bad Homburg. ... It is with elegant ease that this Greek conductor renders the Concerto Grosso in d minor by George Friedrich Händel.
... The final tracks of the CD are devoted to the Chamber Symphony op. 110a by Dmitri Shostakovich. With its dramatic and boyish folklore elements, this work by the famous Russian composer provides an explosive example of how enormous his creative powers were. Lisa Xanthopoulou emphasized the lyrical aspects with just as much care as those passages that pulse with energy in this remarkable work.
