Notes & Reviews:

"The Rubins' traversal of the [Shostakovich Eighth] is among the most gripping, fluid, dramatically perceptive, and technically thrilling I've heard, matching the Emerson's hair-trigger ensemble values while dispatching the central Allegretto with more litheness. In sum, an excellently performed, engineered, and annotated sampling of 20th century quartet pillars - top line music making at a bargain basement price. Go for it." -ClassicsToday
