Notes & Reviews:

With his 8th String Quartet, composed in Dresden in 1960, the 53-year old Shostakovich offers a shattering insight into his personal life and its struggles. Stages in his extraordinary musical and political career are marked by the 3rd Quartet and the 6th. This recording by the Mandelring Quartet continues an important series.
