Press Quotes

“…this is a cracking CD… He [Lloyd-Gonzalez] starts off as he means to go with a terrifying and gripping account of the opening pages. … I haven’t yet mentioned the high quality of the sound, a cooperation between Radio 3 and First Hand Records, which is an immense success… He has a real gift for Shostakovich” (MusicWeb International)
