Notes & Reviews:
"Can there be a body of music more suited than Shostakovich's to sum up the 20th Century? This music is angry, violent, bitter, biting, depressive, ugly, coarse, brutal, sardonic, haunted, enigmatic, gloomy, desperate, terrified, sentimental, brooding, ironic, and always fiercely emotional under the bleak surface...Solti, the Chicago Symphony, and the superb chorus are an ideal combination for this work. The brutal, vicious parts have a magnificent wild energy" -American Record Guide
