Notes & Reviews:

This CD combines Shostakovich's most popular symphony with other orchestral hits, including the thrilling 'Festive Overture' and the witty arrangement of Vincent Youmans's 'Tea for Two'. The conductor and the soloist in Piano Concerto No. 2 are the composer's son and grandson, giving the performance great authority and representing a unique perspective on the music.

Fanfare
Most probably the finest Shostakovich disc ever issued and without doubt my choice
