Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"Although the works of Shostakovich are hardly neglected on CD, there are surprisingly few recordings of his considerable output of songs. It is, then, exciting to come across any recording, even one from 1978. This is in many ways an impressive performance. Polster is not a true bass; he sounds mostly like a baritone, somewhat like the young Fischer-Dieskau, particularly at the top of his range. The only real problem here is that the songs are sung in German..." -Burke, Fanfare
