|'But the Two Choruses, Op. 124, Shostakovich’s contribution to a collaborative cantata celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Revolution, are portents of greater choral outpourings to come in the 13th Symphony and the Execution of Stepan Razin. And the brief, 9-minute suite of music from the 1940 film The Adventures of Korzinkina, the composer’s Op. 59, leaves one wanting more. Perhaps when he’s done with the symphonies, Polyansky can bring us more of that under-explored corner of Shostakovich’s output.'
