Notes & Reviews:

Shostakovich's two cello concertos contain some of his most personal and heartfelt music. Despair and hope alternate in this music, expressing Shostakovich's emotions under a suffocating regime. Russian cellist Alexander Ivashkin brilliantly performs these concertos with the Moscow Symphony Orchestra under Valery Polyansky.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory (10/07/1997-10/09/1997).
