"... at Naxos's give away price this is most definitely an issue to investigate. Nearly an hour of damn good fun; recommended."
"Kucher's version is vividly played, with wit as well as high drama and atmosphere."
"The experience is even more exciting with this impressive Naxos release. In fact this may very well be the best version of this suite currently available...this record will certainly win Shchedrin more than a few new friends."
