"A symphony of outward spiritual triumph . . . became a litany of despair and dissent. Every irony was writ large; every pompous march and frivolous waltz . . . [carried] a sinister subtext." — Chicago Tribune

Myung-Whun Chung leads the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in Dmitri Shostakovich's formidable Fifth Symphony, recorded live during the orchestra's debut concerts of the 2006/07 Season, which celebrated the centennial of Shostakovich's birth.
