Notes & Reviews:

Spanning a period of more than three and a half decades, Shostakovich’s fifteen String Quartets are a musical testament to the composer’s creative evolution. Their intimate and private nature stand in stark contrast to his symphonies. His late quartets evoke the spirit of Beethoven in that there is clearly a refinement of the composer’s musical language and process as well as experimentation in musical form. This disc features the Prazák Quartet in Shostakovich’s last two quartets.
