Composers

Notes & Reviews:

These fabled works dating from 1960–1975 represent some of Shostakovich's most bitterly frank, occasionally transcendental essays for the string quartet. At times poignant yet occasionally ribald, these performances have been called utterly compelling. Unique in this stunning survey is a fine performance of his "Unfinished" quartet, the first recording of what was originally to have been Shostakovich's 9th Quartet, discovered and published in 2003. Additionally, listeners will find two more of Zakarias Grafilo's extraordinary transcriptions of the 1950/51 Preludes and Fugues for Piano Op. 87.
