Notes & Reviews:

'Festive Overture' is one of Shostakovich's most famous works originally composed for a concert to commemorate the 37th anniversary of the October Revolution in 1917. 'Symphony No. 5' is beyond a doubt one of the 20th Century’s most popular and successful symphonic works. The triumph was immediate and greeted Shostakovich's rehabilitation as a truly great Soviet artist. The Philharmonia Orchestra is widely recognized as the UK's finest orchestra with an impressive recording legacy. Vladimir Ashkenazy has a longstanding relationship with the orchestra, and in 2000 he was appointed their Conductor Laureate.
