Music by Dmitri Shostakovich opens and closes this concert by the Malaysian Philharmonic Youth Orchestra. The composer’s Fifth Symphony is the featured work. It is not only the most popular of Shostakovich’s fifteen symphonies but one of the most popular symphonies of the entire twentieth century. The same composer’s impressive Festive Overture opens the concert, followed by a lovely musical landscape of the Bohemian countryside, Smetana’s Moldau.
