Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

The electrifying Pacifica Trio is back with the highly anticipated third installment of their acclaimed Soviet Experience series. This release focuses on Shostakovich's string quartets of the 1960s, Nos. 9-12. Ranging from a balanced neoclassical form to an unpredictable riot of tonal and atonal themes, these quartet's rank among the finest of Shostakovich's later works. The adventurous String Quartet No. 6 of Mieczyslaw Weinberg, Shostakovich's friend and colleague, provides another vantage point to view this period in Soviet history. ("The playing is nothing short of phenomenal, bringing new dimensions of interpretative depth and a subtle fusion of intensity and clarity.... When the series is complete, it looks set to be the one to own." the Telegraph, London)
