Notes & Reviews:

"...[The Gadfly suite is] roughly three-quarters of an hour of Shostakovich at his best, alternately powerful and poignant, bittersweet or bawdy as the occasion requires...[In Five Days - Five Night] so devastated was Shostakovich on surveying the ruins of Dresden - destroyed by Allied bombers in World War II - that he set his feelings to paper both in his Eighth Quartet and as accompaniment for Arnstam's haunting imagery..." -Haller, ARG
