He somehow hasn't really grabbed my attention that much, but maybe it's time for some more listening.
It's nice if Naxos is doing a chamber music series.

EDIT: Am giving the piano concerto a try, from the Brilliant box of Russian Piano Concertos.

The Piano Concerto receives a good performance in the Brilliant Russian Piano Concertos box. It can also be found on a Naxos single CD, together with the Clarinet Concerto etc.
But it's a grim work, often reaching a late-Ustvolskayan, hammering and sparse musical language, with a bit of softening up melodically at times. But generally, the martial, also Shosty-inspired, idiom is quite typical of a lot of similar composers from the USSR-generations. Perhaps he has a bit of personal traits in that martial sparseness though, I seem to remember that one finds it in quite a few works of his.

There’s only a vagueness to Shostakovich, but that’s about it. I find him to be bit more daring in his approach to harmony compared to Shostakovich. You can hear it in works like Music for Orchestra from that fantastic Chandos recording. I liked the Piano Concerto but I prefer the performance with the composer himself playing the piano and Fedoseyev conducting.
