The Symphony No. 3 in E-flat major (First of May) Op. 20 by Dmitri Shostakovich was first performed by the Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra and Academy Capella Choir under Aleksandr Gauk on 21 January 1930 (the anniversary of Lenin's death).

In Symphony N. (1943), Shostakovich gives free rein to his rage and sorrow. The Eighth is a forceful indictment of the 20th century, and The War Symphonies communicates this in an especially stirring segment. While propaganda images – Stalin atop Lenin's Mausoleum, athletes parading across Red Square, airplanes and balloons filling the sky – bombard the viewer, the strings of Gergiev's orchestra build to a maddening, feverish crescendo. Shostakovich resumed his career and went on to finish six more symphonies. But the imprint left on him by Stalin's dictatorial excesses never faded completely. Over two decades, Shostakovich had lost his exuberance and idealism, gaining in their place a maturity that brought with it as much pain and sadness as it did wisdom. As he himself lamented, "The illusions that sustain us crumble slowly, they wither away, until one has no illusions left at all.

Shostakovich's Second and Third Symphonies are crudely propagandistic affairs, dealing, respectively, with the October Revolution and May Day. They're among the least played of his works. But for all their faults, they show flashes of the young composer's genius and retain interest until they sink in the mire of the closing choruses, which loudly declaim their drivel.

With the Stalinist terror of the 1930s about to go into high gear, such criticism was more than career-damaging. It was, quite literally, life-threatening. It is here that The War Symphonies begins its story. While in rehearsal, the symphony was denounced as overly pessimistic; unwilling to risk being attacked a second time, Shostakovich shelved the Fourth until 1961. He fared much better with the tranquil Fifth Symphony, which received a 30-minute ovation after its 1937 premiere. Shostakovich’s next three symphonies were wartime creations. When Nazi Germany invaded the USSR, Shostakovich was teaching in Leningrad, which was quickly surrounded by Hitler’s forces.
