Erkki-Sven Tüür: Symphony No. 5

Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra
Olari Elts, conductor
Ondine: ODE 1234-2
"Elts drew richly burnished tone from the orchestra's eloquent strings in both pieces, and the brilliance of Shostakovich's fast movement [of the Ninth Symphony], by turns skittish and saturnine, benefitted from the contrast with the Moderato's inwardness."
