…performed with considerable virtuosity… Performance ***** Sound *****
BBC Music Magazine

'Valeri Polyansky leads a vivid performance of both works ably abetted by some fine singing from the Russian State Symphonic Cappella.'
Fanfare

'Nabokov's brittle musical idiom projected with great fervour and commitment by Polyansky and his excellent forces, owes something to the Stravinsky of Mavra'
BBC Music Magazine

‘This performance from the Russian State Symphonic Cappella, under its founder [Polyansky], is stunningly atmospheric.’
BBC Music Magazine on CHAN 9564 (Schnittke – Requiem, etc.)

‘The outstanding performances on this disc make a convincing case for these obscure yet powerful works. The mighty male voices of the Russian State Symphonic Cappella are memorably impressive and finely balanced by the lucent lyricism of the women’s.’
BBC Music Magazine on CHAN 9824 (Glazunov – King of the Jews, etc.)
