Notes & Reviews:

Dmitry Shostakovich, the greatest 20th-century Russian composer, has come to stand for the embattled composer who hones his musical creativity even in the face of great political and social pressures. This 2-CD set shows us more than just his familiar symphonies and string quartets, and includes excerpts from his concertos, film and light music, and other chamber works.
