Shostakovich is one of the greatest 20th Century composers, and notable as one of the great symphonists of all time. His music communicates boldly and directly and can be in turn thrillingly exciting or powerfully moving. The Fifth Symphony is the most popular of his symphonies, being full of all the composer’s most striking features and memorable tunes, while the Festive Overture exhilaratingly enjoyable.

This CD combines Shostakovich’s most popular symphony with other orchestral hits, including the thrilling Festive Overture and the witty arrangement of Vincent Youmans’s Tea for Two.

?The conductor and the soloist in Piano Concerto No. 2 are the composer’s son and grandson, giving the performance great authority and representing a unique perspective on the music.

Neeme Järvi’s Shostakovich CDs with the Scottish National Orchestra are some of the most famous recordings of the digital era.

Neeme Järvi’s understanding of the bleak world inhabited by Shostakovich’s symphonies continues to impress. Chandos’s sound is superb as always.
