Notes and Editorial Reviews

A stellar performance of Borodin's only two string quartets by the Shostakovich Quartet. Quartet No. 2 is famous for its evocative and emotional Nocturne where the cello and first violin mimic voices tenderly calling out to each other. Though less known, Quartet No. 1 is musically rich and showcases his originality in nineteenth century music.

"Performance thoroughly enjoyable" -- Penguin Guide
