Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

As Dmitri Shostakovich's music was composed in politically troubled times, it seems obvious to associate his works with such influences - in the String Quartet No. 3, for example, one might hear the joy at surviving the Second World War along with painful and aggressive memories of the time of suffering.
