Notes & Reviews:

"The first thing you will notice about this set, the second complete Shostakovich cycle to appear on SACD, is the excellent live sonics. Interestingly, the best sound seems to follow alongside the best performances: Symphonies Nos. 1, 5, 6, 8, 11, and 12. All are pretty stunning--edgy, visceral, take-no-prisoners performances that stand with the best... as far as complete cycles go, this one is competitive... there's plenty to enjoy here if you want one big SACD box--and this is a good bit more exciting than Kitayenko's SACD set on Capriccio." -Classics Today
