Notes & Reviews:

Shostakovich's Romances to Poems by Alexander Blok, with their desperate serenity, are among the most deeply moving masterworks that owe their birth to Mstislav Rostropovich, who gave the first performance with his wife Galina Vishnevskaya. The other works on this CD need little introduction: the Piano Trio No. 2 has long been acknowledged as one of the most powerful chamber works of the 20th century.
