Notes & Reviews:

This new CD from Onyx Classics is the first new release for several years from the amazing Moscow Soloists and their charismatic director, the great Yuri Bashmet. The disc couples the most famous of the Rudolf Barshai arrangements of the Shostakovich string quartets (No. 8) with two little known chamber symphonies by friends of Shostakovich, the Sviridov being a world premire recording. Bashmet and his group will be touring this repertoire in the US this February.

As one might expect, these are first-rate performances of natural authority.
