Notes & Reviews:

The three quartets on this album provide insight into the conflict Russian composers had with the doctrine of Socialist Realism, and display how a crisis due to political circumstances can achieve new art forms. From the 24 bit/96 khz state-of- the-art recordings out of the St. Petersburg Classics archive, carefully remastered by the prestigious Grammy Award-winning B-Sharp Studio in Berlin using the original source material.
