****

“…'hypothetically murdered'… Shostakovich's long-lost score for a 1931 music-hall show… enjoys a timely resurrection. …you'll enjoy the first incarnation of romps recycled in Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk and the First Piano Concerto, as well as the discreet tinklings of the bar-room piano, the excellent, jazz-friendly CBSO soloists who also savour the solos of the jazz suite at the other end of the programme, and the authentic wail of the flexatone.”
