Synopsis

Album Description
Shostakovich wrote his First Symphony as a graduation exercise at the St. Petersburg Conservatory. Its premiere in 1926 under Nikolai Malko was a popular and critical success and it is still regarded as one of the most mature "first symphonies" ever composed. The Symphony No. 3 is one of Shostakovich?s works with an overtly political program. The choral finale is on a text by Semyon Kirsanov relating the May Day story, with lines like "Every May Day is a step towards Socialism!"
