Notes & Reviews:

Prior to becoming Principle Guest Conductor of the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra, Andrey Boreyko served as chief conductor of the Hamburg Symphony Orchestra from and is currently in the same position with the Düsseldorf Symphony Orchestra. In his first recording for Hänssler CLASSIC, Maestro Boreyko delivered what has come to be regarded as one of the definitive recordings of Shostakovich's difficult and emotionally searing Fourth Symphony. For this new release, Boreyko returns with what will surely become benchmark versions of two equally difficult Shostakovich scores.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2012
There is nothing seriously wrong with the performance unless you insist on the weight and, at length, sheer terror Kondrashin provides...With such distinguished German radio orchestras under threat of merger or worse, it seems churlish not to welcome good but not great Shostakovich.

MusicWeb International, August 2012
Overall, Boreyko's are straightforward interpretations, for the most part well played and recorded - especially considering they were made live.
