“Polyansky and the USSR…are superb … It is marvellous music, strong in its sense of tradition yet yielding to different interpretative approaches. Greater drama, in fact, is contained in some of Polyansky’s powerfully controlled meditations. Polyansky is inward though positive and well-judged” (Gramophone)
