No Notes Found.

"This highly entertaining set generally represents Shostakovich in light-hearted, often ironic mood, throwing out bonnes-bouches like fireworks and with a sparkling vividness of orchestral colour ... Järvi is entirely at home in all this music and clearly relishes its dry humour. The playing is equally perceptive and full of flair. The recording is spectacular and resonantly wide-ranging in the Chandos manner."
