Borodin Quartet Plays Shostakovich

The Borodin Quartet’s relationship with the music of Shostakovich is intensely personal, with the ensemble’s early members playing each new quartet for the composer — and gaining invaluable insights on the nuances of performance — before the work’s premiere.

For the 60-plus years since, The Borodin Quartet has been widely recognized as the most definitive interpreter of Shostakovich’s chamber music.

Hear the revered ensemble in two of Shostakovich’s brilliant quartets — among the greatest contributions to chamber music in the 20th century — along with works by Schubert and Tchaikovsky. Chamber music lover? You won’t want to miss it.
