Nick Barnard
MusicWeb International, January 2012

this is a set of some very fine music making indeed. The Michelangelo Suite I would place as one of this composer’s half-dozen finest works and thereby a piece that should be in the collection of every admirer of Shostakovich. Michail Jurowski impresses by his concentrated control as do the Cologne players who immerse themselves wholly in the demanding and often austere world of these song-cycles. …hear this movingly confessional music in these very fine performances especially since the set is being sold at a twofer mid-price point. © 2012 MusicWeb International Read complete review
