Shostakovich Symphony No.5

This was splendid tonight from the Proms on Radio 3.  You can get it conducted by Bernstein on YouTube, starting here. Oh Aye.

NB.  That Bernstein is a dead end, sorry.  You get nine minutes or so.  Nothing else.  I'll do the proms link when I can.

NB2: Here's the link to the BBC iPlayer - only good until 24th August, mind.   And...

NB3: The first nine minutes or so of that iPlayer link is taken up with the interval, a short documentary about guys collecting dead horses' tails, I think it was.

NB4: That figure of nine minutes has occurred twice in this post for different reasons.  I don't know what to say.
