CD Review: Shostakovich with Helmchen and Jurowski

The new CD release of Shostakovich Piano Concertos and Piano Quintet received a four star review in the Sunday Times:

‘Helmchen proved a deft interpreter of both [concertos], aided by Jurowski at his most engaging; and the outstanding performance of the weightier Piano Quintet…makes this a rare means of acquiring all three works on one CD.’
