Notes & Reviews:

The "Babi Yar" Symphony is one of Shostakovich's most extraordinary musical events. The soothing, lighter-toned bass voice of Sergei Leiferkus offers a chilling and moving narration paired with Masur's outstanding men's chorus of New York. "Kurt Masur pulls no punches where Shostakovich shouts to be heard" (Edward Seckerson, The Independent, 1994).

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Avery Fisher Hall, New York (01/1993).
