The Assault on Beautiful Gorky Dmitri Shostakovich Download 'The Assault on Beautiful Gorky' on iTunes
John Suchet's Album of the Week, 17 November 2014.
This album is a return to more traditionally classical repertoire for Katherine Jenkins and she is in particularly good voice throughout.
Bach, Holst, Elgar and Beethoven all make an appearance alongside a touching vocal version of Einaudi's I Giorni, called Dreaming of the Days.
Classical superstars Alfie Boe and David Garrett also pop up as guest artists - Boe taking on the Freddie Mercury role in Barcelona and Garrett adding a sinuous violin line to an arrangement of Beethoven's Ode to Joy.
Recorded at London's legendary Abbey Road Studios, the album also includes patriotic favourites such as the Welsh national anthem, Land Of My Fathers and How Great Thou Art, which was voted the Nation's Favourite Hymn in 2013. It's a stirring and well-produced way to celebrate the Welsh mezzo's 10th year in the music industry.
