Notes & Reviews:

The latest in Praga's series of historic remasterings is a tribute to three outstanding Russian artists - conductor Yevgeny Mravinsky, choirmaster Alexander Yurlov and the great bass Ivan Petrov. The repertoire is choral music of Dmitri Shostakovich written during the era of Josef Stalin. The oratorio The Song of the Forests was written in 1949 to celebrate the forestation of the Russian steppes following the end of World War II. The cantata The Sun Shines on Our Motherland, with texts by Soviet poet laureate Evgeni Dolmatovsky, was premiered in 1952 on the 35th anniversary of the October Revolution. Ten Poems on Texts by Revolutionary Poets was Shostakovich's first work for a cappella chorus.
