Alexander Borodin composed one of the most popular successful pieces in the romantic quartet repertoire, probably because it is a sort of love letter dedicated to Borodin's wife Ekaterina. Dmitri Shostakovich composed an autobiography in music: after twenty-five years of 'inner emigration' he allowed himself once more to be personal, even if only in words to the wise. And the third composer on this recording was considered a well-kept secret of the Soviet Union for long for the western world: Moisei Vainberg, or (likewise in Russian) Mieczyslaw Weinberg.
