Classical Classroom, Episode 39: Conductor James Gaffigan on Shostakovich's Symphony No. 5

Audio production by Todd "Taller than Necessary" Hulslander with inspired napping from Dacia Clay.

Music in the episode includes:

- Dmitri Shostakovich, Symphony No. 5 in D minor, Op. 47, New York Philharmonic Orchestra led by Leonard Bernstein

PS, I found a really cool article and video on this symphony from PBS's Keeping Score. Check it out here.
