Shostakovich: Under Stalin’s Shadow – Symphonies Nos. 5; 8 & 9 [2 CD]

This recording provides a kaleidoscope of Shostakovich’s struggle with historical events and political pressures. The pre-war eclectic but accessible and popular 5th, in which he would seem to bow to political pressure, ensured his temporary rehabilitation.
