Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"...Shchedrin smuggled in his astringent serial Second Symphony just before the Brezhnev clampdown, covering it with a Second World War inscription from a poem by the officially approved Tvardovsky...Like Old Russian Circus Music (a light-hearted showpiece in the Petrushka tradition), the symphony is intelligent and well-crafted, but must be counted among its composer's more demandingly austere creations. Performance and recording are uniformly fine..." -MacDonald, Classic CD
