Evgeny Svetlanov serves up more of Shchedrin’s expert, knowing chameleon manipulations of style, especially the Piano Concerto (he’s the soloist) which ranges from 12-notery to cool modern jazz. The gem here is the genuinely original comedy of Naughty Limericks, a classic showpiece of its time. Calum MacDonald
