Weber                  Overture: Euryanthe
Beethoven          Symphony no. 5
Shostakovich     Symphony no. 5

Michael Sanderling

Weber’s opera Euryanthe is his musical masterpiece, and the overture shows its many strengths. Beethoven’s fifth symphony, from the most famous opening in music, builds through its four movements from dramatic struggle to a blazing, triumphant conclusion.

Arguments continue to rage over the true meaning of Shostakovich’s most performed and recorded symphony, but it remains a work of extraordinary emotional and musical tension, poised on a knife edge between survival and disaster.
