On this CD Yuri Temirkanov performs the Fifth Symphony with the orchestra that premiered it in 1937. It marked a decisive turning point in the career of a brilliant composer of operas (The Nose, Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District) who was now condemned to silence. The work resolved the dilemma of the symphonist who seeks to be at once innovative and accessible, and thus became, far beyond the borders of the Soviet Union, one of the 20th-century symphonies most frequently performed in the world.
