Premiered in 1937, Shostakovich's Fifth Symphony proved to be an overwhelming success, returning the composer to temporary favor in the eyes of Soviet authorities. It remains one of the most performed symphonies of the 20th century. The jaunty, neo-classical Ninth Symphony offers a stark contrast in size and mood to its companion work on this disc.

The Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra is regarded as one of the leading orchestras in Asia. The orchestra turned professional in 1974, and is celebrating its 50th anniversary during the 2023/24 concert season. The orchestra has toured Europe, Asia, Australia, and extensively across Mainland China with music director Jaap van Zweden. In 2019 the HK Phil won the prestigious Gramophone magazine Orchestra of the Year Award – the first orchestra in Asia to receive this accolade.
