David Hurwitz provides a descriptive analysis of Dmitri Shostakovich's 21 symphonies and concertos, work by work, explaining not just why they are significant documents of their time and place, but why they are great music! This work offers readers an understanding of why Shostakovich's music enjoys the enduring support of performers and listeners alike, and how it fits into the great tradition of Western classical music generally. Accompanying full-length CD includes: Symphony No. 5, Op. 47; Moderato - Allegretto - Largo - Allegro non troppo; Cello Concerto No. 2, Op. 126; Largo - Allegretto (attacca) - Allegretto.
