This disc features two of Shostakovich's chamber opuses performed by two of the best musicians of the 1980s: Oleg Kagan and Yuri Bashmet. Behind the piano is the great Sviatoslav Richter, who was involved in the premiere of the violin sonata in 1968 and performed the viola sonata with Bashmet more than 30 times.
