Notes & Reviews:

In approaching the cello works of Shostakovich, the cellist Alexander Somov has focused on the music. He relates, "Everything is said in the notes." Born just after Shostakovich's death, this young cellist delves with sympathy, nuance, and confidence into these oft-recorded works. Accompanied by his mother, the pianist Bogdana Popoova, he coaxes a remarkable expressive range of colors from the cello. Now based in the United Kingdom, this young artist is the recipient of numerous awards and appears as a soloist with orchestras throughout the UK.
