Notes & Reviews:

This recording from the Debussy Quartet offers a comparative look at the works for string quartet by Dimitri Shostakovich. The program features String Quartet No.5 (1952), No.8 (1960) and No.11 (1966) -one from each of the composer's three creative periods, presented in reverse chronological order. The fifth and eighth quartets share a five note motif that also appears in the composer's Symphony No.10.
