ArtistsBorodin String Quartet
The original Borodin Quartet was founded in 1945 in the Soviet Union and this release marks the Quartet’s 70th anniversary. They enjoyed a close relationship with Shostakovich, and often worked with him as a new quartet was written (they also recorded the cycle).
Now, a new line-up - though still one that bears the characteristic Borodin sound (large, almost symphonic in scope and with a very distinctive way of phrasing) - starts a new cycle with works from very different periods in Shostakovich’s music life (No.1 from 1938, the ever-popular No.8 from 1960 and No.14 from 1972 - begun in Aldeburgh when the composer was staying there with Benjamin Britten).
