Semyon Bychkov leads Shostakovich’s epic Fifth Symphony, a grand work of huge climaxes, triumphant marches, and exhilarating brass. Profoundly sad, the symphony conveys an indomitable spirit and remains his most popular. Plus Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No. 1 — at once virtuosic, melodious, and high-spirited — is a showcase for soloist Bertrand Chamayou.
