Notes & Reviews:

A classic collection re-issued, the Shostakovich Quartet delivers a stunning performance of the Russian composer’s complete quartets for strings. Over six hours of music in this must-have set for both beginners and serious collectors.

“(The Shostakovich Quartet) brings a special intensity to this repertoire as well as an effortless technical address, and a tonal blend which gives their readings a strong claim on the collector’s allegiance. (These) recordings are very satisfactory indeed” - Penguin Guide
