Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The second traversal by the Borodin Quartet of the complete String Quartets of Dmitri Shostakovich. Includes a performance of Shostakovich's Piano Quintet, op. 57, with Sviatoslav Richter at the piano. Arguably the greatest quartet cycle since Beethoven's, Dmitri Shostakovich's string quartets abound in psychological subtlety and emotional range.
