Reviews

'These players approach Shostakovich's mighty cycle with a natural authority that's unanswerable, along with tireless precision and virtuosity, plus a wonderful command of the music's way of switching between sunlight and shadow when you least expect it' (Classic FM Magazine)

'the St Petersburg musicians play with tremendous control of technique and expression; the effect is one of huge emotional strength' (Birmingham Post)
