“Kogan is clearly intent on delivering out and out superheated performances. In this he is aided by a red-blooded orchestra and by an unruly and sumptuous resonant acoustic that does nothing to play down the thunder. … Overall this is a generous and inexpensive disc with big-hearted performances fully engaged with the elemental Russian temperament. They are captured in fine technicolor recordings that are eminently suited to these broodingly coloured and impassioned works.”
— Rob Barnett, Musicweb International
