Notes & Reviews:

"Maxim Shostakovich eschews histrionic gesture; there is much quiet eloquence, grandeur of outline and an impressive gravity to his soberly measured account of the first movement... The scherzo is massively weighty, brutal but less pointedly vicious than usual. The centre of gravity of the finale and of this whole performance is clearly the intensely expressive paragraph, which follows the towering statement of Shostakovich's D-S-C-H monogram; Maxim's earlier restraint has saved a great emotional burden for this moment, and it is deeply moving... Maxim Shostakovich should be compared with Bernard Haitink for noble sobriety" -Gramophone
