Notes & Reviews:

Two works stand as milestones in what is probably the most important symphonic canon of the 20th century; that of Dimitri Shostakovich. In live recordings presented here on SACD, Kurt Masur and the London Philharmonic Orchestra survey the First Symphony, which first established the composer as a skillful symphonist, and the Fifth, which conformed his status as one of the greatest artistic talents of his time. A bit of a tour de force, then, with the stamp of sizzling authority. - David Murray, Financial Times
