Erik Levi
BBC Music Magazine, May 2004

"It takes artists of rare insight and understanding to penetrate beneath the emotionally elusive surface of Shostakovich's death-ridden Viola Sonata. ...Fortunately...Annette Batholdy and Julius Drake are particularly inspired here, the anguish of the viola's intense cadenza passages finding ultimate release in the calm C major of the close."
