Shostakovich's First Symphony
propelled the teenage composer to international prominence, its emotional range and innovative orchestration marking him as a daring and precocious talent on the scene. The Third Symphony, 'The First of May'
, originally intended as part of a symphonic cycle inspired by dates on the revolutionary calendar, has been described as 'a reckless and at times chaotic accommodation between modernist intent and revolutionary fervour'.
