Shostakovich: Lady Macbeth

 (2008)

Shostakovich: Lady Macbeth Blu-ray delivers stunning video and audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

At first glance, the title of Shostakovich’s opera seems to speak for itself: Katherina, neglected and unhappy in her marriage, commits the most heinous crime just like the Shakespearian Lady Macbeth. But Nikolai Leskov’s short novel, which portrays Katherina as a monster, was only the starting point for Shostakovich to elicit understanding for an oppressed woman whose pursuit for self-determination is suppressed by society. Through combining satiric, grotesque and tragic elements in his music, Shostakovich succeeds in striking the balance between repulsion at Katherina’s immoral acts and sympathy for her.

For more about Shostakovich: Lady Macbeth and the Shostakovich: Lady Macbeth Blu-ray release, see Shostakovich: Lady Macbeth Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Shostakovich: Lady Macbeth Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of ArtHaus Musik, with an excellent 1080i AVC encode. The best part of the image is the really luscious lighting design, which varies from rather harsh, realistic browns to the incredibly gorgeous golden hues mentioned above. The final, blue-laden prisoner scene is also incredibly well saturated and very effective. Detail is sharp throughout this Blu-ray. You'll be able to see the errant hair on Charbonnet's wig, and the fine detail on many of the costumes. Skintones are lifelike, and black levels and contrast are also excellent. I was pleased to note that no artifacting occurred in the snow scene, especially since this a 1080i release. This is a very strong looking Blu-ray, if lacking in vibrant costumes and sets.


Shostakovich: Lady Macbeth Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

The DTS-HD MA 7.1 mix is simply astounding, and I was repeatedly impressed with the conducting of James Conlon and playing of the Orchestra of Maggio Musicale Fiorentino. Shostakovich, to borrow a phrase from Hollywood, isn't above "Mickey Mousing" his underscore in this piece (to the point where one wag termed it "Pornophony"), and that descriptive element is fully alive throughout this wonderful sounding recording. Brass is especially robust throughout the opera's four acts, with a bracing and biting ambience that almost reaches out and grabs the listener by the ears. Some of the other, more comical, effects are also brilliantly rendered, with absolute clarity and precision. I did have some occasional qualms with the balance between the singers and orchestra, as with Piergiorgio Chiavazza as the Drunken Guest, whose lower range is completely subsumed by the orchestral accompaniment.
