Notes & Reviews:

A two-disc set containing all of Tchaikovsky's works for string quartet: his four quartets, five early pieces, and two adagios. The Shostakovich Quartet are exquisite interpreters of chamber works by Russian composers, and their skill has been praised by the most prominent music publications.

Penguin Guide
The Shostakovich Quartet are masterly... The early pieces dating from [Shostakovich]'s student days... are of interest as is anything that the master penned.

Gramophone
The Third Quartet is a difficult work to play... a very intense piece, intricately constructed and extending quartet textures further than Tchaikovsky ever had before. The Shostakovich Quartet understand the music well, not only setting intelligent tempos and phrasing with warmth and flexibility, but grasping the very elaborate harmonic structures.
