1959 Record with 'New Orthophonic' recording. Howard Mitchell, Conductor National Symphony Orchestra So many composers seem to hit their stride with a 5th symphony that is considered outstanding. This is true of Shostakovich. The art work on the front has a very interesting painting by Joseph Hirsch, a well known painter from the 30s and 40s. A close up version of Shostakovich's face composed of jewel-like facets echoing the artistic complexity of the music.
