Repertoire Note
Press Quotes

"Ein faszinierendes Werk, in dem Schostakowitsch die Vorstadtentwicklung in der russischen Hauptstadt subtil aufs Korn nimmt. Das in der Kruschtschow-Ära komponierte Stück ist voller subversiver Untertöne, versteckt in einer unschuldigen Musik, die Parodien von Offenbach und einigen russischen Komponisten enthält."
BBC Music Magazine
