Notes & Reviews:

As an "obedient" Soviet artist, Shostakovich set texts of revolutionary poets to music. The result is vintage Shostakovich: under the blatant populist message of the text we hear a melancholy and tender heart. This is the only available recording as a single issue of these works.

BBC Music Magazine, November 2013
An invaluable coupling, with spicily idiomatic performances.

MusicWeb International, 28th August 2013
Wonderfully sung with a clarity that enables the music to weave its magic and that it certainly does.
