John Barbirolli - Beethoven: Symphony No. 5; Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5 album download

Shostakovich 's Fifth Symphony is that composer's carefully crafted response to Stalin's severe criticism of his Symphony No. 4 and especially of his opera Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk. His fate as a Soviet composer (and even of his life) was hanging in the balance. The Soviet authorities were concerned about whether the work was considered to be melodic and, therefore, people music. This is the composition that made Beethoven known to the general public outside his own country. This 1966 concert recording by Barbirolli and the Hallé Orchestra 's reading of Beethoven 's Fifth is straightforward and faithful to the score, architecturally solid, and appropriately rhythmically driving. In this 1963 studio recording, Barbirolli does not approach Shostakovich 's Fifth as a work of triumph, but rather as a statement of resigned understatement.
