About

“always something special about a Russian performance. The slavonic fervour and natural intensity of the singing, both solo and choral, give a gripping added immediacy here to The Bells … an added edge is the inclusion of the stirring cantata called Spring: an immediately attractive piece quite superbly sung by its baritone soloist, Sergei Yakovenko - indeed, the whole performance is unforgettable, both dramatically and vocally” - Gramophone

“1st choice ‘Bells’ in survey”
