Following their electrifying account of Shostakovich’s Eleventh Symphony, Vasily Petrenko and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra explore the profound ambivalences of the composer’s most performed Fifth symphony. It was written in 1937 at a time when Shostakovich was under intense personal and political pressure from the authorities.
