Reviews and impressions

This is an extremely dramatic and atmospheric performance of the Shostakovich 14th Symphony. – Classical Music

The music on this disc is about as far from background listening as one can get. It requires us to face the finitude of our mortality, to look closely into its eyes and see ourselves reflected, craning our necks across the gap of time into the infinity that awaits. – ECM Reviews
