Notes & Reviews:

Symphony No. 1 was written primarily by Shostakovich as a graduation exercise. It has been known to take listeners' breath away with its bewildering range of styles and moments of startling profundity.

Manchester Evening News
Immensely rewarding to hear and a reminder of days gone by...Skrowaczewski, who knew the composer, brings the enormous authority of his experience and his own far-seeing personality to the performance...unmissable

The Times
Skrowaczewski combined something of the orchestra's sophistication with the unequivocal directness which emerges from his own uncompromising honesty in interpretation
