Notes & Reviews:

Not the symphony but chamber music forms the "diary" of the aging Shostakovich, who was forced to suffer illness as well as inner conflicts with the party doctrine during his late years. The string quartets on this recording are central works in this phase from 1964 until 1973 when Shostakovich was looking to connect with international modernism.
