Notes & Reviews:

"Valery Gergiev's live Shostakovich Five seizes hold of its relatively plain rock face right at the start and sculpts a convincing masterpiece from sometimes unpromising material. The line driven through the performance is something we've come to expect from this conductor, and it never lets up even in the most atmospheric moments." ***** - David Nice, BBC Music Magazine
