For Shostakovich the quartet was an intimate and extraordinarily intense means of expression. Tonight
Michael Berkeley introduces performances of two works which, though separated by 14 years, were both anguished responses to the Second
World War. The Third Quartet was prompted by the devastation of his native Russia; Quartet No 8 was inspired by 'the frightful and senseless destruction' which Shostakovich saw in Dresden. The performances are given by the acclaimed Borodin
String Quartet, two of whom were supervised by Shostakovich himself at the Moscow Conservatoire. Sound GRAHAM HAINES
