Notes & Reviews:
Classic recording of this iconic work in the most ideal setting.
Polyansky and the USSR...are superb ... It is marvelous music, strong in its sense of tradition yet yielding to different interpretative approaches. Greater drama, in fact, is contained in some of Polyansky's powerfully controlled meditations. Polyansky is inward though positive and well-judged.
Recording information: Smolensk Cathedral (1988).
