Notes & Reviews:

"If you like Shostakovich's Symphony 13, you're in for a treat - the 26-minute 'Execution of Stepan Razin' is cut from the same parent stern as the symphony. Polyansky and his players and singers have the measure of this music... He phrases Stepan's lines with an expressive warmth that conveys the Yevtushenko-Shostakovich message that the Russian people have often treated their potential saviors rather shabbily." - Hansen, ARG
