Notes & Reviews:

"The final installment of Neeme Jarvi's Shostakovich symphony series with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra pairs two early symphonies with the suite drawn from the ballet "The Bolt." Both symphonies involve choral forces, that make impressive contributions to the "finales" of their respective works. Anyone who is moved by the best of what Shostakovich wrote will be drawn also to these works, especially in such fine performances." -H&B
