 Worth listening to December 14, 2019 By Christian A. (Vienna, VA) See All My Reviews "The performances on here are great. The only problem I have is that putting these two works together feels odd. Shosty 5 is such a monumental and complete work that following it with Festive Overture makes the latter feel lacking in substance. I'm not very familiar with Shosty's works, but preceding the symphony with a 10-15 minute piece seems like a more natural progression to me." Report Abuse
