Notes & Reviews:

"Some works transcend the format for which they were originally written - and Shostakovich's The Gadfly suite is certainly an example. Its 12 sumptuous movements introduce this handsomely packaged box set of numerous soundtracks by the Russian composer." MUSO

"Serebrier directs his Belgian forces with enthusiasm and a fine grasp of the Shostakovich idiom. remains a splendid and convenient collection." -BBC Music Magazine

"Serebrier has always been a dab hand in Russian repertoire and these film scores are no exception. He brings astonishing power and great swathes of colour to "The Gadfly", one of my favourite works and is also very much into the brooding shades of the Shakespearian scores for "Hamlet" and "King Lear" – to my mind this is Shostakovich at his very best in the scoring of such films... Notes and recordings are of the best possible quality with some interesting information on the actual circumstances in which the scores were written. If you really want some of the finest Shostakovich ever recorded then you should snap up this great set without delay." -Classical.net
