Russia in the nineteenth century had little need for chamber music no Parisian-style competitive quartetting here. But out of this very isolation came a small, but nonetheless mighty, handful of works: those by Borodin are among the finest. Piers Lane and the Goldner String Quartet revel in what they find.


... the finely crafted quartet [is] elegantly played here by the Goldners. Their fellow Australian Piers Lane joins them for the handsome Piano Quintet in C minor from 1862, and features again with the fluent Julian Smiles for the Cello Sonata in B minor, incomplete until 1982 when Mikhail Goldstein made this engaging reconstruction.  Stephen Pritchard
