The Leningrad première of Shostakovich's Symphony No. 7 took place on 9 August 1942 during the Second World War, while the city of Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) was under siege by Nazi German forces. Dmitri Shostakovich had intended the piece to be premièred by the Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra, but because of the siege, that group was evacuated from the city, as was the composer himself. The world première of the symphony was held on 5 March in Kuybyshev with the Bolshoi Theatre Orchestra

Shostakovich: Symphony 7, Leningrad. Performances and recordings of Shostakovich's wartime Symphony No. 7 ("Leningrad") are rare. Its length makes it difficult to program, and that it is hard for conductors to organize does not make it any easier for audiences to understand. It may seem strange, therefore, that Yuri Temirkanov's performance with the St. Petersburg Philharmonic is perhaps the finest modern performance of this work.
