"... his [Finley] sense of musical phrase is unfailing; he’s got a sensitivity to literary nuance, coupled with a clarity of enunciation, that few singers can match; and most important of all, his interpretations, for all their emotional immediacy, are marked by an astonishing level of intellect and care. He’s heard in peak form on this new release... Given the particular choices of language and orchestration, of course, there’s really no competition for this release. Even with a bulging catalog, though, this would be a top priority."
Peter J Rabinowitz - Fanfare - September/October 2014
"... powerful performances and near audiophile level sound. In fact, I would go so far as to say that this is potential Want List material."
Arthur Lintgen - Fanfare - September/October 2014
"... This is a must."
Raymond Tuttle - Fanfare - November/December 2014
"An hour of brilliant bleakness from Petrenko and Mørk... a stunning account of both works."
Greg Keane - Limelight magazine.com (Australia) - 5 February 2015
"Almost twenty years after his recording with Mariss Jansons, Truls Mørk comes back to both of the Shostakovich concertos, with more power, more supremacy and more deepness. Emotionally, these recordings are among the most intense, with heartbreaking slow movements and breathtaking climaxes."
Remy Franck - Pizzicato-lu - 11 September 2014
***** (Exceptional Album)
