Notes & Reviews:

The latest newcomer in the successful recording series with The Philadelphia Orchestra and its Music Director Christoph Eschenbach features Dmitri Shostakovich's perennially popular Fifth Symphony. The 'Largo' movement - one of the most heartrendingly beautiful slow movements written by the composer - and the bombastic 'Finale' provide for an entrancing super audio listening experience with the world-renowned sound of The Philadelphia Orchestra. Officially viewed as "the practical creative reply of a Soviet artist to just criticism," this symphony was the Russian composer's mid-career coup - after his music had been politically attacked, he got back into the good graces of both communist officials and the public, who stood and cheered its premiere in 1937.
