‘Polyansky captures the requiem and transfiguration music beautifully … I can recommend it enthusiastically.’
Fanfare on CHAN 9621

‘Polyansky’s keenly observed reading of Shostakovich’s 11th Symphony with the Russian State Symphony Orchestra is aptly rousing.’
BBC Music Magazine on CHAN 9476

‘Polyansky sets spacious tempos … and his orchestra are responsive and idiomatic in colouring.’
Gramophone on CHAN 9600

'Polyansy's superb choir packs a mighty punch in the work's relentless and frenzied opening salvos and the harsh orchestral timbres are delivered with unremitting aggression'.
BBC Music Magazine

'This is a Shostakovich sixth that belongs on everyone's shelf, as does Polyansky's unparalleled reading of iThe execution of Stepan Razini. Shostakovich for the ages.
