Notes & Reviews:

In the string quartets on this recording (Nos. 5, 7 and 9) Shostakovich not only interpreted the achievements of his great role model Beethoven into contemporary musical practice; he also paid tribute to the three important women in his life - his first wife Nina, second wife Irina and his secret love, Galina Ustvolskaya. In addition to this series, the Mandelring Quartet has recordings of the complete Schubert and Brahms string quartets available on Audite.
