Notes and Editorial Reviews

Crisp, brilliant performances of major string works by Tchaikovsky.

Review:

The Shostakovich Quartet is notable for their powerful playing and their ability to get deeply into the emotions of a work. – MusicWeb International

The versions by the Shostakovich Quartet are masterly. The early pieces dating from the composer’s student days are of much interest, as is anything that the master penned.
