Notes & Reviews:
The recordings of the gifted Shostakovich interpreter Andrey Boreyko have met with great acclaim; his Shostakovich's Symphonies No. 9 & 15 (CD 93.284) were awarded the Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik in 2012. Shostakovich completed his Fifth Symphony in July, 1937 as a "response of a Soviet artist to justified criticism" - a critique which befell Shostakovich in 1936 over Stalin's particular displeasure with "Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District".
American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The German radio orchestras are very, very good and do not lack rehearsal time. The strings are rich - almost as rich as in Cologne - and everyone else is exact and efficient, so all the music falls into place perfectly. I guess I have nothing to say against this recording; though I enjoyed it very much.
