About

A musical cosmopolitan and a Russian patriot, many regarded Taneyev's compositions as unintelligible and reactionary. The Utrecht String Quartet, an ensemble delighting in discovery, has now set itself the task of his long overdue rehabilitation.

Just in time for the hundredth anniversary of the composer's death, the Dutch musicians, together with Pieter Wispelwey and Alexander Zemtsov, are presenting his two string quintets in a new recording, shedding new light on Russian music from around the turn of the century.
