Shostakovich’s Symphonies Nos. 1 and 5 stand as milestones in what is probably the most important symphonic canon of the 20th century. In these live recordings Kurt Masur and the London Philharmonic Orchestra survey the First Symphony, which established the composer as a skilful symphonist, and the Fifth, which confirmed his status as one of the greatest artistic talents of his time.
