Notes & Reviews:

"This issue offers two masterpieces in performances and recordings that can more than hold their own against competition both past and present...Miaskovsky's Cello Concerto (1944-5) is full of an all-pervasive nostalgia, a longing for a world lost beyond recall. In sensibility it is in some ways close to the Elgar...I have never heard the Prokofiev sonority better served and its characteristically sardonic bite and wit emerge more potently...An outstanding coupling." -RL, Gramophone
