Album Summary

>Schnittke, Alfred : Quintet for Piano and Strings
>Shostakovich, Dmitri : Quartet for Strings no 15 in E flat minor, Op. 144
Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

Two of the most deeply-touching pieces in the literature of 20th century chamber music, both Shostakovich's final composition, the 15th string quartet, and Schnittke's Piano Quintet are works that seek and find the consolation that lies beyond profound grief and dark despair. In each instance the feeling that deep sorrow is welling from the composer's heart is unmistakable. Superlative performances by the Keller Quartet and Alexei Lubimov.
