Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"More than the Beethoven Quartet of the Taneyev Quartet, the Borodin was the Russian ensemble that made a mission of playing Shostakovich around the world. They recorded his first 11 quartets in Japan. The players work very hard to make every piece a blockbuster. They sharpen textures and layer in an old-fashioned way. This is an invaluable set of discs." - Rawson, ARG
